The staff members of the Division of Invertebrate Zoology at the Museum actively study and archive a massive collection of non-vertebrate animals. Amazingly, invertebrates make up 95% of all animal species on Earth. The Division houses more than 24 million specimens, which comprises about 500,000 species. Most of these specimens are terrestrial arthropods---which include insects and arachnids---like the ones shown here. Research centers around field exploration, the collections, and laboratory studies using morphology and DNA sequences to examine the evolutionary relationships of these remarkable creatures.

Happy birthday to American sculptor Alexander Calder born today in 1898. Known for his mobiles, Calder embraced the meanings implied by the French term, both referring to a motive and something movable, even quick and unstable, and used it for his works where elements moved by currents of air. Enjoy "Red Lily Pads" from our collection and currently on view in Visionaries: Creating a Modern Guggenheim," on view through September 6.
