I=B4d like know some opinions on general role of museal collections and =
museums as institutions in preserving of biodiversity.
The special museal atributes are, for me:

with universities; research, conservational and other institutions
- special standing in taxonomy research like place traditionaly oriented =
to determination of animals, plants, etc.  =20
- exceptional role in presenting of biodiversity knowledge to public.
