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).

A photographic history of Curwen Press and the Wedge Plantation has been added. Click here to find out more about the early history of WERF.
