The SBSTTA2 meeting, the advisory body to the Biodiversity Convention, sent
forward to the Conference of the Party meetings soon to be held in Buenos Aires,
solid recommendations on the important role and plight of taxonomy.  Draw this
to the attention of your government and request action on it, even if it has not
yet signed on to the Convention.  If you're plight is bad, think of developing
countries.  But museum support in the north is needed to support those in the
south.

Secondly support ASC in its endeavors to better sustain museums and taxonomy.
