No dissection of specimens or removal of samples of any kind is allowed without prior approval from the Museum of Biodiversity Curator.  Submit a request for permission to sample or dissect to the Curator. For more details about the information needed in a sampling proposal, contact the Curator. Approval of your request is not assured and depends on the rarity of the material that you wish to sample and the nature of your request. Maintaining the scientific integrity of the specimens is our primary responsibility.
