Scientific Zoological Collections in Natural History Museums are documents of nature and natural science. They are a scientific basis to prove results and to compare objects of scientific interest under different views and to forward new approaches with old and new material. Zoological collections are first essential for serious research in zoological systematics and taxonomy. They are nevertheless also of great importance for other fields of zoological research like ecology, zoogeography, genetics, environemental science, conservation etc.
Therefore all scientists who are working in systematics and other fields which can be documented by objects should deposit important material officially in Zoological Collections of Natural History Museums.
