Morgan's collections are an immense treasure. With more than 70,000 insects, 5,000 plants and 200,000 seeds from around Santa Cruz County, Morgan's collections are likely the most thorough in the region. His collections have been to describe new species, document plant/pollinator interactions, and re-discover species once thought to be extinct. Today, Morgan's collections have even greater value. They still contain undescribed species of plants and insects, and are currently being used by numerous students to understand how pollinator diversity and abundance have changed since the 1980's.
