Arid Lands Field Station
Located on the University of New Mexico main campus in Albuquerque, the Arid Lands Field Station is a satellite office of the Fort Collins Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey. Staff members work in Castetter Hall, home of the Biology Department. The Station conducts research on natural resource and wildlife issues in the southwest, provides baseline inventory and survey information for federal lands, including National Parks and Wildlife Refuges. The station has particular expertise in southwestern amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals (especially bats), and listed and candidate species in the region. Field station personnel manage and curate a museum collection of vertebrates, including a unique collection of fishes from the Colorado River Basin and mammals from federal lands in the Rocky Mountain/Intermountain West.
