Museum specimen data predict crop damage by tropical rodents. (1/69)

Museum collections constitute a massive store of information on biological diversity. We used museum specimen data to generate ecological niche models that provide predictions of geographic distributions of native rodent pest species and agricultural census data that summarize the geographic distribution of nine crops in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, as well as crop losses between planting and harvest. Herein, we show that crop damage is related significantly to the predicted presence of rodent species for seven of nine crops. Museum collections may thus provide important baseline information for designing land-use and agricultural pest-management programs.  (+info)

Classification of three airborne bacteria and proposal of Hymenobacter aerophilus sp. nov. (2/69)

Three aerobic, gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming, red-pigmented, airborne bacteria (I/26-Cor1T, I/32A-Cor1 and I/74-Cor2) collected in the Museo Correr (Venice, Italy) were investigated to determine their taxonomic status by analysing their biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic features and the G+C content of genomic DNA and by comparing their genomic fingerprints. Additionally, the almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain I/26-Cor1T was analysed. The three strains were nearly identical in their morphological, physiological, biochemical and chemotaxonomic properties. The strains contained a menaquinone system with the predominant menaquinone MK-7 and a fatty acid profile with C15:0 anteiso, C15:0 iso and C16:1 predominant. Phosphatidylethanolamine and several unidentified lipids were detected in the polar lipid profiles. The polyamine pattern consisted of sym-homospermidine as the major compound. meso-Diaminopimelic acid was found as the characteristic cell-wall diamino acid. The DNA base composition of the three strains ranged from 60 to 63 mol% G+C. Phylogenetically, strain I/26-Cor1T was most closely related to Hymenobacter actinosclerus (95.8% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). Physiological and genomic characteristics indicated that the two strains I/26-Cor1T and I/32A-Cor1 are representatives of the same species. The phylogenetic distance to any validly described taxon as indicated by 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities demonstrates that I/26-Cor1T and I/32A-Cor1 represent a novel species, for which the name Hymenobacter aerophilus sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain I/26-Cor1T (= DSM 13606T = LMG 19657T). I/32A-Cor1 (= DSM 13607 = LMG 19658) is another strain of the species Hymenobacter aerophilus. Since the taxonomic status of strain I/74-Cor2 within the genus Hymenobacter was not determined unambiguously, it is designated Hymenobacter sp. I/74-Cor2 (= DSM 13611 = LMG 19659).  (+info)

Mantophasmatodea: a new insect order with extant members in the Afrotropics. (3/69)

A new insect order, Mantophasmatodea, is described on the basis of museum specimens of a new genus with two species: Mantophasma zephyra gen. et sp. nov. (one female from Namibia) and M. subsolana sp. nov. (one male from Tanzania). This is the first time since 1914 that a newly described extant insect taxon has proved unplaceable within a recognized order. Mantophasmatodeans are apterous carnivores. Their closest phylogenetic relationships may be to Grylloblattodea (ice-crawlers) and/or Phasmatodea (stick insects), but the morphological evidence is ambiguous. Raptophasma Zompro from Baltic amber is assigned to the Mantophasmatodea, revealing a wider previous range for the lineage.  (+info)

The genetic origins of the Andaman Islanders. (4/69)

Mitochondrial sequences were retrieved from museum specimens of the enigmatic Andaman Islanders to analyze their evolutionary history. D-loop and protein-coding data reveal that phenotypic similarities with African pygmoid groups are convergent. Genetic and epigenetic data are interpreted as favoring the long-term isolation of the Andamanese, extensive population substructure, and/or two temporally distinct settlements. An early colonization featured populations bearing mtDNA lineage M2, and this lineage is hypothesized to represent the phylogenetic signal of an early southern movement of humans through Asia. The results demonstrate that Victorian anthropological collections can be used to study extinct, or seriously admixed populations, to provide new data about early human origins.  (+info)

National Museum of Dentistry exhibition: the future is now! African Americans in dentistry. (5/69)

Inspired by recently published NDA II: The Story of America's Second National Dental Association and sponsored jointly by the National Dental Association Foundation and the Colgate-Palmolive Company, an historical exhibit on dentistry in the African-American community was one of the celebrations for the Golden Anniversary of the American Academy of the History of Dentistry. This exhibit premiered on Sept. 27, 2002 in the National Museum of Dentistry located on the medical/dental campus of the University of Maryland in Baltimore. The Museum recently became an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. Contents of the exhibit were photographs, charts, artifacts, memorabilia, etc. These materials presented an overview of African-American activities in dental education, research, patient care, general practice, dental specialities, military service, and public health. Also included were inter-racial relationships, socioeconomic developments, and participation in civil rights endeavors that played a major role in changing out-dated accepted customs. The exhibit's purpose was to celebrate dentistry's ministrations as a health professional among African Americans in particular and the nation at large over the past two centuries. Respect for and progress of black dentists paralleled that of black physicians who were instrumental in including dentist and pharmacists as equal members in the National Medical Association since the latter's inception in 1895.  (+info)

Plant species descriptions show signs of disease. (6/69)

It is well known that diseases can greatly influence the morphology of plants, but often the incidence of disease is either too rare or the symptoms too obvious for the 'abnormalities' to cause confusion in systematics. However, we have recently come across several misinterpretations of disease-induced traits that may have been perpetuated into modern species inventories. Anther-smut disease (caused by the fungus Microbotryum violaceum) is common in many members of the Caryophyllaceae and related plant families. This disease causes anthers of infected plants to be filled with dark-violet fungal spores rather than pollen. Otherwise, their vegetative morphology is within the normal range of healthy plants. Here, we present the results of a herbarium survey showing that a number of type specimens (on which the species name and original description are based) in the genus Silene from Asia are diseased with anther smut. The primary visible disease symptom, namely the dark-violet anthers, is incorporated into the original species descriptions and some of these descriptions have persisted unchanged into modern floras. This raises the question of whether diseased type specimens have erroneously been given unique species names.  (+info)

Preserving and sharing examples of anatomical variation and developmental anomalies via photorealistic virtual reality. (7/69)

Computer graphics technology has made it possible to create photographic-quality virtual specimens from real anatomical material. One technique for doing this, QuickTime Virtual Reality (QTVR), results in virtual specimens that are easily shared on the Internet and displayed as standalone entities or incorporated into complex programs or Web sites. A compelling use of this technology is the sharing of rare specimens such as unusual variations, developmental anomalies or gross pathology. These types of specimens have traditionally been confined to anatomical museums, but could serve a much more useful existence as freely shared virtual specimens. An example presented here is a relatively rare developmental defect in the embryonic aortic arches that results in a right-sided aortic arch coursing posterior to the trachea and esophagus. In a time of ever increasing restraints on the practical side of anatomy education, an Internet-based library of human variation and other rare specimens would be a useful supplement to students' limited exposure to the human body. Since the discovery and preparation of specimens would be the rate-limiting step in producing such a collection, we propose the establishment of a center for virtual specimen creation and preservation through a cooperative effort by gross anatomists and pathologists in contributing the source material. This collection, a work in progress, is available at www.anatomy.wright.edu/qtvr.  (+info)

Short report: A new polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method to identify Anopheles arabiensis from An. gambiae and its two molecular forms from degraded DNA templates or museum samples. (8/69)

We present a polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method to simultaneously distinguish the two Anopheles gambiae M and S molecular forms and Anopheles arabiensis. This method uses different diagnostic sites than previously published methods, and it is based on the amplification of a smaller ribosomal DNA fragment. We have tested this protocol in a variety of samples from different geographic regions and various ages of preservation to ascertain the robustness of this protocol over a wide geographic window and on DNA templates of poor quality. This procedure is as efficient as previous ones in discriminating An. arabiensis from the two taxa in An gambiae s.s. However, it performs better than others on poor quality templates such as the ones from museum collections, and poorly stored field collected material. However, it must be noted that it does not allow the simultaneous discrimination of all the species in the An. gambiae complex.  (+info)

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County will open its newly restored 1913 Building in July with "Age of Mammals" -- an exhibition thats been 65 million years in the making. "This is the first permanent museum exhibit to trace the history of evolution -- from the extinction of the dinosaurs to the rise of humans -- within the context of epochal changes in the Earths geology and climate," says John Harris, the Natural History Museums head of vertebrate studies and chief curator of the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits.. "We believe this new way of telling our story is not only exciting and illuminating but provides a powerful message for people today about climate change and human impact on our environment.". "Age of Mammals" will fill one wing of the 1913 Building with a mix of ancient fossils, modern specimens and interactive multimedia. Visitors can learn how violent movements of the great land masses radically affected global temperatures and weather patterns and how these ...

The Canadian Postal Museum was established in 1971 and opened in 1974 as the National Postal Museum. It joined the Canadian Museum of Civilization in 1988, adopted its current name in 1996, and moved into a permanent space in the Museum of Civilization in 1997.. The museum was closed in 2012 as the Canadian Museum of Civilization began to prepare to transition into the Canadian History Museum. The Postal Museum collections, now in storage, are managed by the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation, a federal Crown Corporation that is also responsible for the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Canadian War Museum, the Canadian Childrens Museum, and the Virtual Museum of New France.[2] The postal collection is being broken up.

In 1960, the Science Museum - taking advantage of a state-sponsored experiment into the use of acoustic guidance in national museums and galleries - introduced a new technology for audio interpretation known as the Radio-Guided Tour. The experiment had initially been proposed by the Ministry of Works, which promised to extend the scheme to other publicly owned national museums, subject to successful trials. With an in-house workshop ready to respond to technical failures and as an experiment into applied science in its own right, the Science Museum was the obvious host for the Radio-Guided Tour experiment. The technology comprised of a miniature radio station which broadcast a taped commentary via a loop induction system to a series of hand-held radio receivers. The radio receivers, known colloquially as lorgnettes, were made available for hire at the Museums bookstall at a cost of one shilling and a returnable deposit of ten shillings (see Figure 5). The first exhibition space to host the ...

There is something for everyone this season at Koshland. Make a quantum leap beyond the usual science museum experience and attend a public program this summer!
December 14, 2009 - WASHINGTON - Beginning in January, the Marian Koshland Science Museum is offering several public programs and free science cafés that explore a wide range of topics, from identity theft to the U.S. Census to viruses such as influenza and AIDS. The public programs will take place at the Koshland Science Museum; the science cafés will be held at Busboys and Poets. A schedule of events follows.
The first predecessor to todays National Museum was the Insular Museum of Ethnology, Natural History, and Commerce under the Department of Public Instruction, created in 1901 by the Philippine Commission. In `903, the Museum was subsequently transferred to the Department of Interior and renamed the Bureau of Ethnological Survey. This new bureau was responsible for the Philippine participation in the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904. After the exposition, it was abolished as a separate bureau and renamed the Philippine Museum. The museums structure again changed in 1933 when the Philippine Legislature divided the museum. The museums Division of Fine Arts and History went to the National Library. Its Division of Ethnology went to the Bureau of Science. Finally its Division of Anthropology, which included archaeology, ethnography and physical anthropology, and the other sections of natural history of the Bureau of Science, were organized into a National History Museum Division. This was ...

The Fleet Air Arm Museum can trace its origins to 1974 when a group of volunteers associated with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) obtained five obsolete RAN aircraft and began work to establish a museum for display of artifacts to present the story of Australian Naval aviation. $80m were raised from various sources for a large hangar and function centre. In 1990, the Australian Naval Aviation Museum Foundation was established to operate the museum. In 2000, the museum was renamed Australias Museum of Flight and its role expanded to displaying artifacts related to Australian aviation. In 2006, ownership and management of the museum were handed to the Royal Australian Navy and it was renamed the Fleet Air Arm Museum. The museum now displays more than 34 aircraft and many aviation artifacts.[4] ...
Animals with backbones (vertebrates) make up only 4% of the species on our planet. Yet when you walk into a natural history museum, theyre all you see. The dinosaur skeletons stretching across a ballroom? Vertebrates. Dioramas starring posed buffalo, lions, or zebra? Vertebrates. The endless cases of delicate stuffed birds? You guessed it: vertebrates.. "Its a real tragedy: far and away, most of the animal kingdom is tiny," said Jack Ashby, Manager of the Grant Museum of Zoology at University College London. "Natural history museums really only ever put big animals on display. Thats not very representative of nature.". A new permanent exhibit at the museum, called the Micrarium, tries to fill the gap by displaying the smallest organisms. Microscope slides containing cross-sections of insects and other invertebrates are stacked wall-to-wall in a small room, lit from behind. Visitors can see the detail of the eye-level slides-but the point is larger than any of the individual animals.. "All ...
A museum in the Phoenix area is hoping to add an eye-catching element to its building - and its looking for donations to get the project going. The Arizona Museum of Natural History, located in a nondescript building in downtown Mesa, is easy to miss from the street. Thats part of why museum officials want to install a life-sized replica of a carnivorous dinosaur - one that will appear to be bursting through the wall of the museum.

Museums are embracing technologies, such as DNA sequencing, to both enhance understanding of their collections and showcase scientific research to the public. Many museums around the world now have molecular laboratories. DNA sequencing has many useful applications for museum research; for example, it can be used to distinguish new species, determine the evolutionary relationships between species and identify the region of origin of artefacts such as kahu kiwi (kiwi feather cloaks). However, it has only recently been appreciated that care should be taken in the construction and use of museum molecular labs. Why is the situation for museums different to universities and other institutions where molecular biology labs are commonplace?. Museums are storehouses of important biological collections and these can become contaminated with copies of DNA that are generated in molecular laboratories. A technique routinely used in molecular labs in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). PCR is an extremely ...
The history of the museum can be said to begin in 1780 with the foundation of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, which still continues, but whose collection of archaeological and other finds was transferred to the government in 1858 as the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland, based in Queen Street in the New Town, Edinburgh.[4]. In 1861 construction of the Industrial Museum of Scotland began, with Prince Albert laying the foundation stone. In 1866, renamed the Edinburgh Museum of Science and Art, the eastern end and the Grand Gallery were opened by Prince Alfred. In 1888 the building was finished and in 1904 the institution was renamed the Royal Scottish Museum.[5]. The organizational merger of the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Museum took place in 1985, but the two collections retained separate buildings until 1995 when the Queen Street building closed, to reopen later as the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. In 1998 the new Museum of Scotland ...

Two Pacific lampreys, residents at the High Desert Museum since February, were released Thursday into the upper Umatilla River basin through a re-introduction effort to restore the population of the culturally important fish. The High Desert Museum housed the two jawless, snakelike fish in partnership with the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, which is working with other local tribes to manage the lampreys dwindling population. In the next few weeks, members of the Umatilla tribe will bring another pair of Pacific lamprey to the museum. Jessica Stewart, associate curator of wildlife at the High Desert Museum, said the museum plans to regularly house and release lampreys, making the prehistoric fish a consistent attraction at the museum. The lampreys presence at the museum has helped educate the public about the often misunderstood creature, Stewart said. At first glance, lampreys startle people with their circular mouths, filled with sharp teeth. But lampreys are a ...

Image: Rick Snyders Vegetable Resource Page This is not unusual. Weve found similar omissions at the vast majority of small-town science-related museums we visit. We praise the Tomato Museums historical intentions, as well as the fact that it has been successfully launched and beautifully sited. To be fair, unless any new museum receives professional advice and ample funding for exhibit design, it often takes many years for a museum to mature and realize its founders vision. Also, other "tomato towns" and festivals have no tomato museums at all, and this one charges no fee. To date, the worlds best known museum of this kind is on the Channel Island of Guernsey-a UK crown dependency. As if to illustrate that tomato museums really can be fascinating for children and do improve over time, Laura Solon (Times Online, 2008) writes: "I dont think I will ever be able to dissociate holidays entirely from the Tomato Museum in Guernsey. We had many family holidays to the island, which if you are aged ...

The best known and most impressive of the five museums is undoubtedly the Pergamon Museum. It is primarily known for the examples of ancient architecture such as the Pergamon Altar, the Ishtar Gate from Babylon, the Market Gate of Miletus and the Mshatta Facade. The enthusiasm for these highlights in the previous reviews is absolutely justified. But there is much more to see. I was very impressed by the collection of Islamic art (e.g. the Aleppo Room, photo). Even if you only take a look at the highlights of the museum, you can easily spend half a day there. In October 2009, the reconstruction of the Neues Museum (by David Chipperfield) was completed and now, for the first time since WWII, all five museums are open for the public. Neues Museum shows the famous Nefertiti bust, but I was even more enthusiastic with the renovated museum. The building was severely damaged during the WWII and Chipperfield rebuilt it in its original shape. The original remains were preserved and irretrievably lost ...

The study of diversity in nature is traditionally the focus of research done by natural history museums. For this goal the collections are the background, and to document the variety of forms was the purpose of scientific collecting since the 18th century. Today some 1.4 million animal species are described, but estimates on their real number amount to 10 and even 30 million species. Due to habitat destruction and environmental changes many of these will go extinct before they become known to science. At the same time the number of systematists - i.e. the specialists familiar with the various groups of organisms - is drastically declining throughout the world. Systematics has been banned from the research and teaching programmes of most European universities. Thus the natural history museums are today the refuges for systematic knowledge.. Collection-based research is therefore the foundation of NMBEs research activities. These, however, encompass not only purely taxonomic studies, for very ...
Haunting the halls of the museum is a very fond childhood memory," she said. "The sights, the sounds, the smells - the museum had a very distinct smell. So its a very special place for me.

She mentored his students, who often came to the house. She was their mom away from home ...

I decided to take a deeper look into our museum collection and found that it began with William Bauer, a German inventor during the Crimean War in 1865 who was the first to try and capture images underwater by taking photos through the portholes in the submarine. Also in the same year, according to the British Society of Underwater Photographers, the first underwater photograph was taken by William Thompson using a housed plate camera that was lowered to the seabed and operated from a boat. Thompson was inspired by the possibility of using underwater photography to assess the damage done to bridges in times of flood. However it wasnt until 1893 that the first real underwater photograph was taken by Dr. Louis Boutan. An article by John Humphrey in Science states that Dr.Boutan earned a doctorate in sciences from the University of Paris and had his first diving experience in Banyuls-sur-Mer when they invited him to use the laboratorys diving suit. He, like many divers, found himself fascinated ...

MCI Paintings Conservator Dawn V. Rogala was recently invited to the University of Texas at Austin, where she presented the Mary Saunders Leech Lecture in Fine Arts and led a Mellon Foundation Professional Development Seminar as part of a two-day event entitled "Conversations in Conservation: Old Master Paintings in the Blanton Museum of Art." During the event-a collaboration between the university and the university museum-Dr. Rogala consulted with museum curators and doctoral research fellows on paintings from the Blanton Museum of Arts Old Master and Modern and Contemporary collections, gave a presentation on visual assessment skills for art historians, and led art history graduate students in a seminar practicum during which they applied these skills to the assessment of works from the museum collection.

In this illustrated lecture, professor Stephen Asma-author of the the definitive study of the natural history museum Stuffed Animals and Pickled Heads: the Culture and History of Natural History Museums-will draw upon his studies of science museums and monsters to reflect on their often hidden moral aspects. Museums are saying more about values than many people notice, and the same can be said about our cultural fascinations with monsters. The urge to classify, set boundaries, and draw lines between the natural and the unnatural are age-old impulses. In this lecture, Dr. Asma will try to excavate some of the moral uses and abuses of this impulse ...
