Welcome

The Tardigrade Reference Center is a collaborative effort to bring both the current and historical information about tardigrades to everybody. The site is the work of Dr. Clark W. Beasley of McMurry University, Abilene, TX and Dr. William R. Miller of Baker University, Baldwin City, KS and their students. The site is built like a scientific paper and provides reference to all source materials.

In addition, there are examples of research projects that can be used at different levels of teaching or student projects.
