The Wesleyan Biology Department maintains records of arboretum biodiversity in the form of four accumulating checklists. These are extended and updated several times a year as new reliable observations and identifications occur.
Birds of the Wesleyan Campus is a checklist of native and migratory birds, identified either by sight or by call. This list is maintained by Dr. Ferrari and is often updated with the results of biannual bird counts. (printable version) *
Critters of the Wesleyan Campus is a checklist of amphibians, reptiles and mammals, identified by sight or by call in the Wesleyan Arboretum or in the surrounding North Macon neighborhood. Many "critters" are cryptic in appearance and/or behavior and animals have not been expressly trapped for the purpose of identification. Because of this, listings for some groups, such as salamanders, snakes, rodents and bats, are necessarily incomplete. This list is maintained by Dr. Rhoades. (printable version) *
Trees, Shrubs and Woody Vines of the Wesleyan Campus is a checklist of woody seed plants found in the arboretum and/or on the front campus. This list is maintained by Dr. Ferrari and referenced extensively for Botany classes. (printable version) *
Butterflies of Wesleyan College is a checklist of butterflies seen on the Wesleyan campus. It was originally compiled by Jerry Payne and Rose Payne (Wesleyan Class of 1977). This list is currently maintained by Dr. Ferrari. (printable version) *
