Andrea MilazzoHistory-The Museum of Zoology is a zoological research and diffusion of scientific culture whose Foundation dates back to the second half of the nineteenth century (1862-1894 with Director Prof. Peter Doderlein). Thanks to the maintenance of the facilities and furnishings inside the Museum you can still breathe the atmosphere of interest today for the animal world that characterized researchers and scholars of the second half of the 19th century. The structure, closed to the public for 7 years, reopened in March of 2009 after a Convention that assigns additional service management ad Astrid Services for nature and environment Ltd, which guided care, cultural and educational projects. In the first 5 years of operation has already hosted about 25 thousand visitors. The Museum has over the years played a very important role in the scientific collection, preservation and care of animals which over time have been collected by various researchers from Palermo, achieving one of the most important collections, even historical, of Italy. Some specimens, especially, have great scientific value as a species extinct in Sicily, holotypes, specimens of fish first witnesses entering the Mediterranean from the Red Sea, etc. Here is a brief review of the Collections. -Fish are kept over 1200 copies of the underwater world of the Mediterranean Sea and former Sicilian exploitation and the current degradation of the environment and ecosystems. More historical evidence of environments that no longer exist are from the sturgeon in the river Oreto and the size of some species such as Crabs, eels, sea breams and sea bream, which no longer can be found in our waters. Interesting are then all Atlantic fishes that testify to a 19th-century Mediterranean entrance of alien species (Suez Canal). Reptiles and amphibians-The Herpetological collection includes about 500 specimens preserved in alcohol or in dry of most species present in Sicily, by lizards, snakes and lizards, the most common to the rarest endemic plants of different circumsiciliane Islands. In the collection you can find an alien species, Xenopus laevis, an African frog that prey some Sicilian species that for this reason they are struggling for survival. Mammals-the collection consists of 200 stuffed specimens from different European regions, Asian, African and American. Of particular interest are two of the very few extant specimens of Sicilian Wolf (a puppy and an adult) extinct in 1935. The collection is also enriched by small mammals endemic species preserved in fluid, from various Mediterranean islands (e.g. the Sicilian Shrew endemite siculomaltese). There are also more than 1000 bone and anatomical parts dating back to the historic core of Doderlein Collections. Birds-1700, and mounted specimens exposed or leather (carefully preserved for scientific purposes), about 1000 belong to the original collection of Doderlein. The collection includes dozens of important bird species. Of particular interest are some rare or accidental migration (lesser spotted eagle, Dalmatian Pelican) but especially the many extinct species in our island (Eagle, eagle owl, little Bustard, Buttonquail). These include the Gryphon, for several years has been reintroduced with success on the Nebrodi mountains. Invertebrates-of great historical value for the presence of several types (examples of which are described species) still apply. About 2000 boxes. There are hundreds of species of Coleoptera, Lepidoptera and Orthoptera. Also significant is the collection of about 500 specimens of marine invertebrates preserved in formalin or alcohol, which allow a full rundown of the major zoological groups of the Mediterranean from Coelenterates in Chordates.show original
