The Joshua Laerm Mammalogy Collection contains 25,000 specimens including study skins, skeletal material, and alcohol preserved materials. It was organized in the early 1940s by Eugene P. Odum and his students. There are specimens in the collection that date back to the early 1900's thus providing an historical view of the mammals of the state. The Mammalogy Collection is located both on campus at the Georgia Museum of Natural History and off campus at the Annex. Nikki Castleberry, Curator of the Mammalogy Collection, regularly accepts student interns each semester for BIOL, ECOL, or FNAR 4261 (Museum of Natural History Internship).
