With respect, Meldgaard's email does not clarify the issue.     Are any systematists, taxonomists, etc of the institute (in the broad sense) affected?     I would have expected that the Biology department would have such scientists on its staff.     There may in fact be very few systematists and taxonomists on the Museum's staff per se.

Dear Poul Kirk,


I was informed by Thomas Pape that you were under the impression that we were sacking people at the Natural History Museum of Denmark. Even though the museum has a strained economy, this is not the case. The reduction of personnel is concentrated at the dept of Biology and the dept of Geography and Geology - which is bad enough.
