Selected study unit - Biology Unit

What do botanists, arborists, arachnologists, entomologists, herpetologists, mycologists, ornithologists, palontologists, zoologists and a whole host of other -ologists collect? They collect biology on stamps and philatelic materials, of course. Since 1951, the Biology Unit has brought together philatelists to study biological themes. Its members range from eager enthusiasts to the most highly respected scientists in biological studies, and the unit's journal Biophilately reflects the wealth of its members' study with an average of 50 pages per quarterly issue. Biology unit members have access to back issues of the journal through the unit's website, http://www.biophilately.org/. With six specialties in the top 20 most popular topics of ATA members, it's no surprise that the Biology Unit has such a wide range of materials of interest.
