This online-only volume features current work regarding two of Wally Welker’s principles and contributions to this field: (1) the importance of gathering anatomical, physiological and behavioral data from a wide but orderly diversity of animal forms, and (2) the employment of the latest technological developments. The volume will present a survey of the history and contents of the outstanding brain collection that Welker assembled and publicized, and those of several other such assemblies that he was instrumental in amalgamating into a single national resource. Also presented is an intercontinental survey of other groupings of resources, so as to provide a world resource listing, that modern technological resources can make available to everyone world-wide the data contained in these varied, multiform, and diverse resources. Other contents of the volume introduce new uses of imaging and other technologies for the study of brain evolution.
