Summary: 

The PRI Insect Collection holds more than 350,000 vials with more than 3 million insect and arthropod specimens inside. About 70 percent of these are in vials with stoppers that are – or could soon be – melting. An NSF grant supports our efforts to replace these stoppers and protect these specimens.
