Please, we are today here in France on a holiday (commemorating 8 May 1945),=
so nobody can answer you from MNHN (except me as you can read ;-).
I am somewhat surprised by the Elizabeth Arias's message, but she can send a=
message to Loic Matile (lmatile at mnhn.fr) or Thierry Bourgooin (bourgoin at mnh=
n.fr), they work both in entomology lab. Maybe the first request was not too=
much argumented, or did not come from a known lab or else ? Retry, I think=
there will be a solution.
About photos on the web, we have recently bought a video system for that and=
it is under testing, so wait some time before we can provide such photograp=
The MNHN collection are open to all, but as Barry said, we have to take some=
=46or the french Post Service, it is good, thank you.
I understand very well the problems for non european countries to study old=
material stored in european museums, and believe or not, but we do our best=
to make easier collaborations, sending material and welcoming foreign peopl=
We were in great discussions the two last months to improve the financial=
support and thus, the use of our collections.
