The Entomological Bucket
This report from the Daily Telegraph seems to imply that the humble bucket is the storage tool of preference for entomologists before they resort to the more standard pin and drawer.
"Scientists have also discovered at least three new species hidden among Mr Cadiou's specimen trays and buckets."
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
