Parasite Collection

The Parasite Collection in the department of Biological Sciences contains tens of thousands of preserved specimens ranging from microscopic to a metre in length. The geographic scope spans the planet with strong representation from Alberta and the Northwest Territories. The collection is an excellent regional resource for comparative parasitic analysis, as well as research into climate change and basic ecological principles. The collection is used extensively for teaching and research.
As the University of Alberta is enacting additional safety measures regarding the state of public health emergency in Alberta, all museum collections will be closed until further notice.
