The department is the museum´s center for research and education about zoological systematics and biology.
The zoological collections managed by the department are the basis for that research, and are used by scientists both in-house and internationally.
The zoological collections are large, and vary in size from whale skeletons to tiny flies and microscopic nematodes. Read more about our collections.
Specimens are regularly sent on loan all over the world.
