Travels

The Albert J. Cook Arthropod Research Collection (ARC) personnel have undertaken many research trips throughout the continental United States, especially Michigan, and abroad. Our foreign holdings, particularly our tropical bark beetle collection, have expanded significantly over the last nine years thanks to collaborations with other researchers throughout the world.
