The Wedge Entomological Research Foundation (WERF) is a non-
profit organization dedicated to producing taxonomic monographs
on the moth fauna of the Nearctic Region.
The Foundation's principle focus is to publish biosystematic
treatments on the estimated sixteen thousand plus species of moths
found in North America in a series of monographs -
"The Moths of North America" (MONA).
