West Texas A&M University  

West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) serves as a satellite for gathering data, conducting fieldwork and training for the REVSYS Vaejovidae project. The geographical location of WTAMU makes it ideally suited as a base for fieldwork in northern Mexico, Texas, New Mexico, and eastern Arizona. A member of the Texas A&M University System, WTAMU is dedicated to providing high quality baccalaureate and graduate education. WTAMU is committed to serving as the principal academic, cultural, technical, service, and research center for the multi-state region surrounding Canyon and Amarillo. WTAMU, a comprehensive Master’s I institution of higher education located in the heart of the Texas Panhandle in Canyon, ca. 20 miles south of Amarillo, serves as the principal undergraduate and graduate institution for a 26 000 square mile area.  
     WTAMU has one school—the Graduate School—and four colleges—the College of Agriculture, Nursing, and Natural Sciences; the College of Education and Social Sciences; the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities; and the T. Boone Pickens College of Business. There are 14 divisions/departments located within these colleges/school. The University also serves as a regional division for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service (TAES), the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI), the Texas Forest Service, and the Texas Wildlife Management Service. In addition, the University supports a number of active institutes, the most notable of which are the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Carcass Data Service, the Dryland Agriculture Institute, and the Alternative Energy Institute. It also takes pride in the Cornette Library and the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.  
     The Department of Life, Earth, & Environmental Sciences provides undergraduate and Master’s level graduate students with the opportunity to obtain a broad background in the biological sciences. The department has emphases in natural history, ecology, and systematics, and has a solid record in undergraduate and graduate student research. The Department has excellent facilities with supporting equipment for fieldwork, including four 16-passenger vans and a four-wheel drive pickup. Details of some of the major facilities and equipment available at WTAMU for this project
are accessible through links on the menu to the left of this page.
