Research Programs

BRIT research staff strives to incorporate the “three Ds” into each of our projects: discovery, documentation, and dissemination. Our researchers generally focus their projects around the themes of biodiversity, evolution, and conservation, incorporating and contributing to our world-class collections. Participating in a variety of projects at the state, national, and international level, our researchers are always on the go…and always learning.
