The highest peaks of the Appalachian Mountains are home to many animal species found nowhere else on Earth. These species include many tiny arthropods, such as insects, millipedes and their relatives living in leaf litter of forests located in high elevations on the mountains. Research in these mountain communities has revealed many new species in recent years, but the full scope of their diversity remains unclear. In an effort to discover and protect these unique species, Clemson University entomology professor Michael Caterino plans to collect and document as many arthropods as he can from the mountains.
