The Tulane University Biodiversity Research Institute (TUBRI) is a private, non-profit zoological research center affiliated with Tulane University. Historically functioning as a natural history museum, comprising research collections of invertebrates, fishes, amphibians and reptiles, birds, mammals, and vertebrate fossils [see Historical Perspective], only the Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection is being retained and TUBRI now specializes in biodiversity discovery (primarily in fishes) and biodiversity informatics research. TUBRI is an administrative unit of the Tulane University School of Science and Engineering. Henry L. Bart, Jr., Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology serves as TUBRI Director.
TUBRI is located on the grounds of the F. Edward Hebert "Riverside" Research Center in the English Turn region of the Mississippi River, near Belle Chasse.
