A Message From the Director


The Florida Museum of Natural History is extremely proud of its
outstanding faculty and staff These dedicated men and women have
created one of the finest university natural history museums in the
nation. They represent this institution's single greatest resource.

In 1906, when the
University of Florida
opened its doors
in Gainesville, the
Museum occupied the
third floor of Science
Hall. There was no permanent staff until the first
Museum director, Thompson Van Hyning, was hired in
1914. A quick glance at the professional staff listing in
this Annual Report shows just how much the Museum's
staff has grown in the last century. Our professional staff
now tops 125, supplemented by an even greater number
of part-time and hourly employees.

But a larger staff is only one aspect of growth. Equally
significant is our growth in staff quality and diversity.
Unlike the early years when all the Museum's personnel
were men, about 40 percent of current staff and faculty
are women, several of whom achieved notable distinction
this past year.

Curator Emeritus Elizabeth Wing was elected to the U.S.
National Academy of Sciences in 2006, an achievement
considered one of the highest honors in American
science. Dr. Wing is recognized worldwide as a pioneer
in zooarchaeology, the study of animal remains in
archaeological sites. She initiated the world's first formal
program in zooarchaeology at the Florida Museum in
1961 which she nurtured during her 45-year career into
the present-day Environmental Archaeology Program.
Dr. Wing is only the tenth member of the National
Academy from UF, and the third from the Florida
Museum (including Drs. David Dilcher and the late Ed
Deevey.) We are enormously proud of her contributions
to the profession, and particularly of her many associates
and students who now continue this work in universities
and museums around the world.

Another of our leading female faculty members achieving
signal honors this year was Dr. Pamela Soltis who directs
the Museum's Molecular Systematics and Evolutionary
Genetics program along with husband Doug, Chair of
the UF Department of Botany. Pam and her co-authors
received the 2005 Stebbins Medal from the International
Association of Plant Taxonomists for their landmark
book, Phylogeny and Evolution of Angiosperms. The
Stebbins Medal is awarded for an outstanding publication
in plant systematics and plant evolution.

Likewise Pam, Doug, and David Dilcher received
2006 Centennial Awards from the Botanical Society of
America. This award was established to acknowledge and
honor outstanding contributions to plant sciences. Pam
and Doug also jointly received the 2006 Asa Gray Award,
the highest honor awarded by the American Society of
Plant Taxonomists, established to recognize outstanding
scientists for their contributions to systematics research.

The awards and recognition garnered by outstanding
women scientists like Drs. Wing and Soltis in the past
year speak to the growing reputation of the Museum's
professional staff, its research programs and its scholarly
accomplishments. Like UF, the Florida Museum has
grown in both size and stature from 1906-2006. Led
by its dedicated professional staff, the next 100 years
promise even more growth.

Collections and Research
Research and curatorial activities at the Florida Museum of Natural History saw another year
of vigorous growth during 2005-06. Dickinson Hall, which is no longer open to the public, is
where most of the Museum's 24 million objects are housed along with the associated field notes,
photographs, databases and libraries that enhance their irreplaceable scientific value.
The Museum brought in more than $3.1 million in new and continuing multi-year grants to support research,
collections curation and education. Museum research focuses on studies of DNA, anatomy, ecology and
behavior and the evolution of plants, animals and human cultures. While the Museum's primary geographic
strengths are in Florida, the Southeastern United States, and the Caribbean, the collections and research
programs span the globe. Many of the collections of plants, animals, fossils and artifacts rank among the top
10 in the United States.

McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity

Ihe McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity acquired millions of butterfly and moth
specimens last year, increasing the size of the collections housed at the Museum to an estimated
eight million. he Museum acquired one ofthe largestprivate collections in the world from Germany,
which included two million specimens and more than 40,000 Lepidoptera books and journals.
McGuire Center faculty and staff spent many weeks packing, shipping and curating these specimens.

Curators, other staff and graduate students also traveled
to the western and northeastern U.S., Central and
South America, Asia and Europe to collect thousands
of new specimens, conduct research and attend scientific
meetings and conferences.

The McGuire Center hosted a four-day combined
meeting in June of the international Lepidopterists'
Society, the Association for Tropical Lepidoptera and
the Southern Lepidopterists' Society, which drew more
than 300 participants. Curator Jacqueline Miller and
other McGuire staff organized presentations, field trips
and workshops for the meeting.

In April, assistant curator Keith R. Willmott organized
the Andean Butterfly Biodiversity Workshop, which
brought nearly 20 of the world's leading neotropical
lepidopterists to plan an intensive professional curatorial
training program in conjunction with major museums
? throughout South America.

McGuire staff also helped construct the new Florida
Wildflower and Butterfly Garden west of the Museum
and re-plant the north slope butterfly gardens between
the Florida Museum and the Harn Museum of Art.

Assistant curator Jaret Daniels continued to direct the
Miami Blue butterfly captive propagation program and
led numerous trips to South Florida to release caterpillars
of this endangered species back into the wild.

Educational Programming

More than 34,000 visitors participated in an array of Florida Museum educational programs
during 2005-06. 7hese included curriculum-based tours for students, summer camps, outreach
programs to schools and community centers, teacher and other adult workshops, weekday and
weekend classes for children, and public events ranging from lectures to the annual Collectors Day.

Museum education programs emphasize natural history
topics, are designed around the collection strengths and
staff expertise and are developed in response to needs
articulated by our various audiences. Underpinning
these objectives are the central notions that the
Museum's education initiatives should engage diverse
audiences and promote understanding of the processes
and findings of science, specifically natural history.
The Museum's education programs bridge our scientific
research, fieldwork and collections and the public's
interest and concern for Florida's past and future natural
environments and cultural heritage.

Public Programs

Nearly 19,000 adults and childrenparticipated
in public programming at the Museum.

These activities included summer camps, adult workshops
and classes, field trips, lectures, weekend and school
holiday classes for kids and a preschool program for tots
and parents. Adult classes ranged from Sunday afternoon
lectures and one-day programs on Edible Geography to
two-day workshops on Botanical Illustration. Museum
Nights expanded to include special themed programming
and the addition of Science Movie Night. The Museum
added a new weekday program for preschoolers and their
parents, Wigglers & Walkers, and a newweekend .H......
Let's Explore Science Series.

The Museum's Public Programs also included annual and
special events such as Collectors Day, Celestial Celebrations,
Earth Day and Family Days at each exhibition opening.
Attendance ranged from 500 to more than 3,000 visitors
per event. During the summer, the Museum hosted
a popular Discovery Room full of artifacts, materials
and activities that encouraged family interaction and
fun. The Discovery Room allowed Florida Museum
Research and Collections staff to showcase some of the
Museum's rarely seen specimens and talk with visitors
about research and conservation efforts. The education
department also received a $16,000 gift from the Florida
Museum Associates to help support the Discovery Room
and Discovery Carts.

2005-2006 Annual Report I 1 3

Center for Informal Science Education

7he Florida Museum's Center for Informal Science Education garnered new funding and awards

* A gift from the Thomas H. Maren Foundation
to create the 7Zhomas H. Maren Museum Education
Endowment and support the Center's educational
outreach programs.

* More than $400,1 ," o1 "" 1 to expand the Marvelous
Explorations through Science and Stories program,
including one of eight Administration for Children
and Families awards from nearly 700 applicants
nationwide. Project partners include Childhood
Development Services, Inc. of Marion County,
Marion County Public Library System, Silver River
Museum and Environmental Education Center and
Marion County Public Schools. The Florida Museum
Associates and Sonny's of Ocala funded additional
books and resources for the MESS units used in
Marion County Head Start classrooms. MESS is a
multi-faceted program that includes a science-centered
curriculum, teacher training and coaching, and family
engagement. Using a clinical trials methodology,
MESS was implemented in 14 Head Start classrooms
in Marion County. The three-year implementation
award for Marion County MESS will total more than
$1.1 million.

* Additional funding from the Maren Foundation to
provide Head Start Family Science Programs at 18
sites in Alachua and Marion counties. The programs
engage families in hands-on activities and provide
each with two science books.

* A $158,560 General Program Support grant from
the Florida Department of State to fund exhibit and .. ..-
education initiatives.

The Center also developed and piloted the Project Butterfly
WINGS Project Guide, Leader and Helper Guide and web
site with 4-H youth and leaders in 33 Florida counties.
Project Butterfly WINGS Winning Investigative Network
for Great Science is a field- and web-based citizen project
that engages 4-H youth in grades 4-8 in the study of
butterflies. WINGS is a collaborative project with UF's
Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and
4-H, Florida Cooperative Extension Service funded by a
three-year National Science Foundation grant.

The Center, in collaboration with the McGuire Center
S and IFAS Extension, completed initial work on the
Florida Wildflowers and Butterflies brochure, web site,
1 exhibit and demonstration garden. This project is funded
by the State of Florida, Florida Wildflower Advisory
Council and Florida Wildflower Foundation, Inc.

Development P

7he Florida Museum ofNaturalHistory is fortunate to have a remar :!,
and engaged family of donors and friends who recognize the importance of
private giving to the Museum's success. Donations account for nearly one quarter
ofthe Museum's annual budget and are a keyfactor in the Museum's ability tof full its mission.
Most importantly, private gifts will continue toprovide the margin needed to create new programs
or expand existing ones to meet current needs.

Endowments are critical for providing a reliable and
permanent income stream to support the Museum's
activities and are eligible for state matching. Several
significant gifts were received, including a donation of
$500,000 to support shark research, which is important
due to the rapid demise of worldwide shark populations.
A $400,000 gift from the Thomas H. Maren Foundation
is designated for the Center for Informal Science
Education's Marvelous Explorations through Science and
Stories program, which encourages reading and science
skills in young children enrolled in Head Start.

The Florida Museum continued its partnership with
the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art and the Curtis M.
Phillips Center for Performing Arts in presenting the
third joint fundraiser, Motown at the Cultural Plaza,
on January 21, 2006. Featuring the Funk Brothers, the
studio musicians who worked with most Motown artists
and created more No. 1 hits than the Beatles, Beach Boys,
Elvis and Rolling Stones combined, the evening was
a tremendous success and raised nearly $100,000. The
Florida Museum looks forward to future collaborations
with our sister institutions and also to the return of our
own Passport gala in 2007!

The Museum's Membership Program is thriving under
the guidance of Leslie Campbell. With nearly 830
members, this group supports both research and public
programs. Member previews for In Search of Giant Squid,
Glow: Living Lights and Quilting Natural Florida were
all well-attended. The Museum is seeking ways to make
membership even more rewarding and plans to offer
additional member benefits in the coming year.

As we look to the future, several priorities will guide
the Museum. The basis for all of our activities lies in the
collections, which are an international treasure. To ensure
adequate funding for maintenance, curatorial activities
and data base growth, the Museum is seeking collections
endowments for each department. In addition, training
students is one of the Museum's highest priorities.
Funding to support their laboratory research and travel
is sorely needed, as are funds to support international

The Museum also hopes to build an auditorium and
education wing at Powell Hall. With all classes at
maximum enrollment and our public lectures over
capacity, the time is right to expand the facility and
meet the community need for science and education

The Florida Museum is excited by its progress and vision
for future growth and expansion. By building upon the
solid base already created by friends and donors, the
Museum hopes to continue that support and reach others
who care about the environment and diversity of life on
earth, and who want to join us as we strive to understand
and protect both.
