Abstract

Entomological collections developed by taxonomists and taxonomically - inclined entomologists are unique resources for research, teaching and service activities in entomology. An entomological collection is a permanent information storage and retrieval system for insects and other arthropods. We must expand systematic research associated with entomological collections while meeting the escalating demand for taxonomic services from the user community. To achieve these objectives we should adopt more efficient storage and retrieval systems for entomological collections wherever possible. As we move to conserve the world's fauna and flora, all of us in the entomological community must be committed to the preservation of the principle that affirms free exchange of scientific specimens of insects and other arthropods among scientists of all nations for free scientific inquiry, and to the protection of science from unduly political legislation.
