Brock University Herbarium (BU) from Brock University

Heather VanVolkenburg
Brock is a publicly funded university located in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada. Its location along the Niagara Escarpment grants it a special position within a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The Niagara region is special as it represents one of the last regions in Canada where the Carolinian ecosystem can be found and where many specie at risk are present. Unfortunately, for various reasons, the region has been the target of few intensive biodiversity...

Ophion scutellaris species group specimen data from University of Northern British Columbia

Marla Schwarzfeld
The diverse genus Ophion is almost entirely undescribed in the Nearctic region. In this paper we define the Ophion scutellaris species group. This species group is well-supported by analysis of DNA (ITS2, COI, and 28S D2-D3) and morphology. It includes the Palearctic species O. scutellaris and the Nearctic species O. idoneus. An integrative analysis of DNA, geometric wing morphometrics, classical morphometrics and qualitative morphology indicates that this species group contains a minimum of seven species...

University of British Columbia Herbarium (UBC) - Lichen Collection from University of British Columbia

Linda Jennings
With 40,000 lichen specimens catalogued to date, the UBC Herbarium houses one of the largest lichen collections in western North America. We have a very solid macrolichen collection, with a strong focus on cyanolichens, especially the genus Peltigera. For this genus, at least, this is certainly the largest collection in North America. The collection is also strong in Calicioids as well as in other microlichen groups characteristic of oldgrowth forests. Taken as a whole, the...

University of Lethbridge Herbarium (LEA) from University of Lethbridge

John Bain
The University of Lethbridge Herbarium was founded shortly after 1968 by Job Kuijt, primarily as a teaching collection representative of the local flora. The herbarium houses the reference collection that forms the foundation for Kuijt's 1982 book A Flora of Waterton Lakes National Park and also numerous Packera collections by J.F. Bain. The collection currently includes over 20,000 specimens of vascular plants and remains an important research tool for botanists, students and the general public.

Database of Vascular Plants of Canada (VASCAN) from Université de Montréal Biodiversity Centre

Luc Brouillet
VASCAN is the Database of Vascular Plants of Canada (http://data.canadensys.net/vascan). It is a comprehensive and curated list of all vascular plants reported in Canada, Greenland (Denmark) and Saint Pierre and Miquelon (France). VASCAN is literature-based, though recent additions are sometimes specimen-based. For every core taxon (species, subspecies or variety) we provide the accepted scientific name (Latin), the accepted French and English vernacular names, and their synonyms/alternatives in Canada. We indicate the distribution status (native, introduced,...

It includes about 620,000+ vascular plants and 50,000+ bryophytes. Half of the material is Canadian, but representation is global. This dataset includes the 135,000+ digitized specimens from the collection.

Bishop's University Insect Collection (BUIC)

The Bishop's University Insect Collection houses approximately 200,000 specimens, mostly from the Holarctic region, with particular strength in northern and alpine Diptera.

Insectarium de Montréal (IMQC)

Maxim Larrivée
The Montréal Insectarium was created thanks to the initiative of notary and self-taught entomologist Georges Brossard, who, in 1988, donated a major collection of naturalized insects. This collection was displayed until the complete renovation of the permanent exhibition in 2011. Then, in 1989, the scientific and historical collection of Brother Firmin Laliberté was used as a starting point for the Insectarium’s scientific collections. The Insectarium’s scientific collections are composed of more than 225,000 insect specimens...

Robert Forsyth Terrestrial Gastropods Collection

Robert Forsyth & Annegret Nicolai
The terrestrial molluscan fauna of Canada includes about 200 species in total, with centres of diversity on the west coast (British Columbia) and in southwest Ontario. Populations of many species of land snails and slugs (including most range-edge species) are believed at-risk due to habitat loss. The group has been long neglected in Canada and largely overlooked by efforts to conserve Canada‘s biodiversity. Since almost 30 years Robert Forsyth and associate collectors across Canada provide...

Bees (Hymenoptera : Apoidea) of Far Northern Ontario and Akimiski Island, Nunavut

Kayla Vizza
These specimens are bees that have been gathered from Ontario's Far North as a part of the Far North Biodiversity Project with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and from Akimiski Island Nunavut. Akimiski specimens were gathered at the research station therein. Most of these bee specimens are bycatch from traps intended to catch biting flies. This dataset is to published in an upcoming article in the Journal of the Entomological Society of...

Spiders (Arachnida: Araneae) of the Canadian Prairies from Biological Survey of Canada

Héctor Cárcamo
Spiders are the 7th most diverse order of arthropods globally and are prominent predators in all prairie habitats. In this chapter a checklist for the spiders of the prairie provinces (751 species), and surrounding jurisdictions (44 species) is presented along with an overview of all 26 families that occur in the region. Eighteen of the species from the region are adventive. Linyphiidae is by far the dominant family representing 39% of all the species. Lycosidae...

University of British Columbia - Spencer Entomological Collection (UBCZ) from University of British Columbia

Karen Needham
Over half a million pinned specimens, 75,000 alcohol-preserved specimens and 25,000 specimens on slides showcase BC and the Yukon’s spectacular insect diversity. Past collectors’ particular projects have shaped the collection, and have resulted in particularly strong holdings of Hemiptera (true bugs), Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies), Siphonaptera (fleas) and Anoplura and Mallophaga (lice). The collection has also been enriched by the following notable holdings: Downes Hemiptera (true bugs) Foxlee Diptera (true flies) and Hymenoptera (bees and...
