Collection details

Holdings: 

The centerpiece of PIPeR is a collection of 1,180 species of slide-mounted lice, representing nearly two thirds of the 301 recognized genera, making it the fourth most diverse collection in North America (in top 10 worldwide). The collection is invaluable because of the consistent quality of its specimens, most of which were prepared by Dr. Roger Price, a leading authority on Phthirapteran systematics. http://darwin.biology.utah.edu/Piper.html
