The University of Texas at Austin Brackenridge Field Laboratory
(BFL) is a unique urban research station located on 82 acres of land that borders the Colorado River along Lake Austin Boulevard. From the early days of the University of Texas, biologists have used this tract of land for research, teaching, and specimen collection, and since the establishment of the Field Laboratory in 1967, BFL has continued to evolve as a center for biodiversity research in Texas. In addition to these wild spaces, modern facilities exist that provide onsite workspaces and resources.
Specimens collected at the BFL, including 1200 Moths Species
, are housed in the University of Texas Insect Collection (UTIC) (1)
