How can I help to archive molecular biodiversity?

In times of accelerated species loss, you can help to archive molecular biodiversity for the future and to secure particularly valuable specimens for scientific research:

        A) by donating samples that are suitable for molecular analysis, that have
             extensive collecting data and are taxonomically well determined.

        B) by donating money to allow the incorporation of new material into the
             Biobank. We will be happy to issue a donation receipt.

Please contact us beforehand in either case: biobank [at]
