Prof. Peter C. Kjærgaard visited the Zoological Museum of Kiel University

Feb 05, 2016

On February 4th Peter C. Kjærgaard, the new director of the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen, visited the Zoological Museum of Kiel University to finalize the repatriation process of the Kiel Fabricius collection. Peter Kjærgaard was accompanied by Nikolaj Scharff, head of Collections, Professor and Curator at the Natural History Museum of Denmark. The Zoological Museum of Kiel University (CAU) lent its Fabricius collection to the Natural History Museum of Denmark in 1958, where the collection still remains today. In discussions with Dirk Brandis, Michael Kuhlmann and Thomas Bosch, an agreement was reached that a part of the collection of Fabricius exhibits will be transferred back to Kiel along with part of the Danish Sehested Tønder Lund collection. The return of the entire Kiel Fabricius collection in its original composition is not practical from a scientific standpoint. The main problem would be the separation of type series, which would render scientific access to the types significantly more difficult. The Zoological Museum of Kiel University and the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen plan a close cooperation in the future preparation, acquisition and management of the two Fabricius collections.
