Hello all,

Thanks to Tracy for posting the link to the newspaper article about
the gift of a private butterfly collection to the University of
Florida.

Robert Pyle, one of the leading lepidopterists in North America and an
ardent conservationist, recently wrote an article defending the
practice of collecting butterflies.  You can download a copy of his
article on the MBS site at:
