Available Data

The Arctos Collaborative Collection Management  database holds specimen data from the University of Alaska Museum of the North and others through a searchable interface.  The Kenelm W. Philip Alaska Lepidoptera Survey Collection can also be found there. These data are shared with iDigBio and GBIF.org, so are available through those portals as well. More information about these data is available here.
