University of Guam Biorepository receives 30,000-specimen coral collection

A biorepository of Micronesian marine specimens at the University of Guam Marine Laboratory is welcoming its largest addition yet—a private collection of around 30,000 coral specimens from Richard Randall, a UOG professor emeritus of marine biology.

The facility—the Guam Ecosystems Collaboratorium for Corals and Oceans (GECCO) Biorepository—is both a physical and cyber warehouse of records and images that is operated by the Guam EPSCoR program, which is funded by the National Science Foundation.

Randall’s collection includes specimens from Guam and throughout the Pacific and reflects the 56 years he spent at the UOG Marine Laboratory researching coral reef biology and geology.
