The Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity (CPMAB)
houses more than 250,000 specimens of insects, spiders, scorpions, centipedes,
and millipedes, which are primarily from the western United States and Mexico.
The CPMAB’s collection is used to support research, education, and public
outreach. One of the museum’s current focuses is ensuring that the collection
more accessible and relevant to ecologists, especially those working on
projects related to issues of conservation and biodiversity.
