Riassunto: This book covers the physical care of botanical and zoological collections for scientific teaching and display purposes with emphasis on preservation for scientific value. A manual for curators and collections managers containing practical guidance, recommendations and advice across the whole field of natural history curation (excluding palaeontology).

A wide range of international experts with hands-on experience of collections have been chosen to contribute chapters on the care and conservation of both dried and fluid-preserved collections of plant material, vertebrates and invertebrates. The emphasis is on remedial conservation, ie the employment of best practice to prevent or arrest the long-term deterioration of specimens to preserve their scientific and cultural worth. Special chapters will cover the fields of genetic material, pest control, the museum environment - policies and procedures, with appendices on such topics as documentation and disaster planning.

*Practical manual containing guidance, recommendations and advice for natural history curation and conservation
*Clearly presented, well illustrated, including colour photographs and extensive references
*Multi-contributor work by the best in their respective fields

L'autore: Assistant Director of the International Institute of Entomology
