Stickleback Research

at Clark University

Specimen Collection

The laboratory contains a set of preserved collections of threespine stickleback from more than 100 Alaska lakes and streams, and from several British Columbia lakes as well. The Alaska collection, totaling nearly 250,000 specimens in more than 1,500 samples, is a valuable archive for several of our research foci:

Eventually, the entire set of collections will likely be transferred to the new Museum of the North in Fairbanks, Alaska. This museum houses collections and artifacts documenting all major aspects of Alaskan culture, geography, and biology.
