Welcome to the AIMG website!

The American Isopod and Myriapod Group (AIMG) is passionately committed to advancing the study and understanding of Isopoda and Myriapoda in North and Central America. Our mission revolves around facilitating accurate identifications, disseminating distribution information, and conducting research on these often overlooked arthropods. We have created a wide range of resources that are accessible to all individuals, regardless of their background or expertise though our website, online newsletter, study notes, and engaging field and online meetings. These initiatives are designed to inspire and captivate both hobbyists and academics alike. By bridging the divide between these two groups, we strive to foster a collaborative environment that nurtures a deeper comprehension of these groups.  Our ultimate ambition is to illuminate the remarkable world of isopods and myriapods, and in doing so, cultivate a more holistic understanding of their biology. We value your input and encourage you to reach out to us via email if you encounter any errors on our website or have suggestions for improving our information.  Join us on this exhilarating journey of exploration and discovery as we unravel the mysteries of these extraordinary creatures together!
