College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources & College of Science

announce the opening of the new


For the first time in the University’s history, we have integrated the research and teaching collections of the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources and the College of Science into a single natural history museum. Located on the third floor of the Fleischmann Agriculture building, the museum holds irreplaceable specimens of plants and animals that are used in research, teaching and outreach. Collections date back as far as the 1890s, and represent a unique snapshot of the flora and fauna of our region and beyond!

The museum holds over 92,000 plant specimens of great historical and scientific value, as well as a growing collection of over 500,000 local and tropical insects, and more than 10,000 mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Our museum is the result of decades of collection by University of Nevada, Reno faculty, volunteers and students, and it showcases the wealth of our natural heritage.

<P>You need to measure the various components accurately before mixing them. A recipe for a concrete mix <a title="Ralph Lauren Polo Sale" href=""><STRONG>Ralph Lauren Polo Sale</STRONG></a> is given as three numbers for example 1:3:4. This means one part Portland cement mixed with three parts sand and four parts gravel. The only approved way of using the sensor is to place <a title="Ralph Lauren Uk Outlet" href=""><STRONG>Ralph Lauren Uk Outlet</STRONG></a> it in the footbed of a Nike+ shoe. Nike now has a selection of shoes decorated with the Nike Swoosh and a plus sign. The Moire was one of the first produced, and I really like this shoe. be. </P>
