Nena’s #SciCommChall: Organizing a museum collection

Nena is sharing another “science on the breakfast table” idea with us:

Can you find the same species in the insect box?
Collections are the heart of a museum. To be able to overlook the over hundreds or even thousands of species, you have to establish order. Here you can see how we create a “bee-mess” into a “bee-system”. The same species, which can be make up based on colour, shape and patterns, were put together and related species were attached to them in the same insect box. Every specie is getting a number and this number is listed in a small book for this certain “bee-collection”.
