Southwestern Research Station (SWRS)

The SWRS is a biological field station owned and operated by the AMNH. Since 1955, it has served biologists, geologists, and anthropologists interested in studying the diverse environments and biota of the Chiricahua Mountains in southeastern Arizona. The Station welcomes scientists and advanced students from all parts of the USA and abroad to carry out their research projects. Investigators live in comfortable cabins provided with linens and blankets, and take their meals, cafeteria-style, in a common dining room. The main house contains a dining room, library, lounge with fireplace, ping-pong room, and laundry room. Outside is a large swimming pool, volleyball court, and horseshoe pit. The area is laced with trails for hiking and climbing amongst spectacular scenery. The Station is open all year but scientists must cook for themselves from early November through early March. Facilities in the Osborn Memorial Laboratory include library, insect collection, herbarium, vertebrate collections, photography laboratory, etc. Completed in 1992, the Technical Equipment Laboratory provides excellent microscopic facilities, constant temperature chambers, chemical hood, low-temperature freezer, precision balances, centrifuges, etc. Recent additions of outdoor aviary complexes and an Animal Behavior Observatory afford outstanding facilities for ethological and behavioral ecological studies.
