Even though Southern California is one of the most populated regions in the United States, it is also one of the most biologically diverse regions on earth.
This website is an attempt to catalog and learn about many of the organisms that live in our area. Not all the organisms in this site are native Californians. Like the people that live here, many other organisms originated elsewhere. We have also included lab animals and landscape plants from our campus.
