As the new millennium dawns, museums across the nation report record attendance and
popularity. America's 15,000 museums receive approximately 2.3 million visits each day, or
about 865 million visits per year. In Florida, home to some 400 museums, the same trend
Florida currently ranks among the most populous and rapidly growing states in the nation, and
the Florida Museum of Natural History is on a similar trajectory. With more than 25 million
specimens and objects in its permanent collections, the Florida Museum is the largest collection
based natural history museum in the Southeast and one of the premier natural history museums
in the nation.
During 1999, more than 116,000 people visited the Florida Museum of Natural History's new
education and exhibition center, Powell Hall, located in the cultural plaza on the western edge of
the UF campus. Included in this number are 35,000 K-12 students participating in museum
educational programs. Another quarter million individuals viewed traveling exhibits created by
museum staff and artisans.
As the Florida Museum of Natural History enters the 21st century, however, it is interesting to note that an even greater
number of visitors come to the museum through cyberspace. The museum's expanding web site recorded 60 million hits
last year, including nearly 2.5 million user sessions averaging 12 minutes each.
Many of our visitors are surprised to learn that the Florida Museum of Natural History is over 100 years old, tracing its
origin back to the latter part of the 19th century. In 1917 the Florida Legislature designated it the state's official natural
history museum. Over the ensuing 83 years, the museum's growth and development have mirrored that of the state itself.
Today the museum is more popular than ever. And, we predict that visitation will increase substantially after the perma
nent exhibitions at Powell Hall are completed, when the museum's traveling exhibit program is expanded, and with
planned enhancements to our web site. But increasing visitation is only one indication of success.
Our curators and professional staff are engaged in a record number of research projects throughout the state and the
world. Current funding for these projects includes the largest external research grants ever awarded to museum investiga
tors. Scholarly publications are at an all-time high, as is the use of our research collections by scientists from around the
world. The enduring commitment of the museum to research, collections and scholarship is evidenced by the continuing
success and productivity of these academic efforts, as well as by recent American Association of Museums re-accreditation
for the museum.
I believe that the Florida Museum of Natural History's continuing success is directly related to its ability to remain true
to its mission. In pursuing this mission, the museum engages in a spectrum of activities: from fieldwork, to building
scientific collections, to original research and publication, to teaching, public education and exhibitions. Happily, each of
these endeavors remains dynamic and strong.
The Florida Museum of Natural History enters the 21st century committed to creating new scientific knowledge,
promoting an understanding of the world around us, and preserving our natural and cultural heritage-timeless values
for a timeless institution. .
More than 116, 000 people visited the
museum during 1999, with an estimated
124, 000 expected for 2000.
Our visitors come from throughout Florida,
the United States and the world. About one-
half of all visitors come for organized

Considerable progress in the development of
three permanent exhibits at Powell Hall was
made during the past year.
Northwest Florida: Waterways and Wildlife
Powell Hall's first permanent exhibit hall, directed by
museum scientist Richard Franz, was completed and
opened to the public in August. This 4,000-square-foot
exhibit hall traces water as it flows from a cave-hammock
and pitcher plant bog, to the Appalachicola River and a
The exhibit has spectacular murals, dioramas, and three
dozen interpretive panels and artifacts from museum
collections representing geology, paleontology, botany and
archaeology. In addition to water, the exhibit's underlying
theme is the rich biodiversity found in Northwest Florida
and the threat of human activities that imperil native species.
This exhibit was designed with the help of Synergy Design
Group of Tallahassee. All of the content, as well as most of
the construction, sculpting and fabrication was done in
house by our scientific and exhibits staff.

EarthQuest: The Challenge Begins
In the fall of 1999, the museum joined x. i
the Alachua County Office of Waste
Management to bring this highly
interactive exhibit to Gainesville. The
exhibit used many hands-on activities to
emphasize the importance of recycling ai I 1 1

Exhibits and Education Endowments
During 1999-2000 two endowments were formed, one for Public Education and the other
for Exhibits. With additional gifts from the State Matching Gifts Program, each of these
programs now has an endowment of $150,000.
Images of the Miccosukee
During the summer and fall of 1999, the museum
displayed this photographic exhibit of Miccosukee Indian
life taken in the Everglades during the 1930s by Florence
Stiles Randle and her teen-age niece, Phyllis Sheffield.
These images capture the elegant spirit of the Miccosukee,
a people who defied all odds to escape 19th-century
persecution and managed to retain their beliefs, customs
and language in the remote interior of the Everglades.
Down Like Lead: 400 Years of
Designed and produced under the direction of Florida
Museum curator Susan Milbrath, the museum opened this
4,000-square-foot exhibit in the spring of 2000. Featuring
a large diorama re-creating a 1559 wreck from Emanuel
Point near Pensacola, Down Like Lead highlights 14
Florida shipwrecks from 1559 to 1942. The exhibit also
focuses on early cartography, the golden age of piracy, and
the history of ship design, shipwreck salvage and underwa
ter archaeology. It will travel to other venues in 2001-2002.
Portraits of Early Floridians
This exhibit of 15 paintings by artist Theodore Morris
provided a glimpse of Florida's early native peoples. The
vivid portraits, displayed during the fall of 1999, illustrate
the activities and dress of five Florida Indian groups: the
Calusa, Apalachee, Timucua, Tocobaga and Ais.
National Geographic nature photographer Mark Emery
also displayed his work in the main gallery during the
spring and summer of 2000.
Several Florida Museum-produced exhibits were displayed
at other institutions and venues throughout the year. These
included The Last 50 Million Years: Paleontology of the
Southeast, which was exhibited at Santa Fe Community
College, the Georgia Museum of Natural History and the
Gainesville Regional Airport. The Images of the Maya
textiles exhibit was displayed at New Mexico State
University in Las Cruces; the Schiele Museum of Natural
History in Gastonia N.C.; the Museum of Anthropology
at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem N.C.; and
the Brevard Museum of History and Science in Cocoa, FL.
The Fort Mose satellite exhibit was displayed at the
Georgia Museum of Natural History. Several smaller
exhibits were displayed locally at the University of Florida
Marston Science Library, Matheson Historical Center and
Alachua County Public Library System.
Frequent Visitor Club
The Frequent Visitor Club invited individuals to sign up
for free membership at the club desk, where in return they
were allowed to choose from one of six artifacts to take
home. With each return visit (limit of six), club members
could select another natural history artifact. The club
included more than 7,000 members.
-' in addition to receiving artifacts and
-C certificates of completion after six
visits, club members were invited to
special events, including a behind

The Pony Express is a public outreach program that
involves museum supporters in educational activities
dealing with Florida paleontology, and in particular, fossil
horses. In 1999-2000, 40 people assisted museum
scientists in digging 18-million-year-old fossil horses at the
University of Florida Thomas Farm site. Twenty people
participated in Family Day at Thomas Farm, 12 people
collected fossils in western Nebraska on the Western
Adventure and 12 people learned how to prepare, catalog
and cast fossils at the Summer Lab Session. The Pony
Express publishes a biannual newsletter, which also is
available on the museum web site.

described a new species of bass in the Oct. 8 edition of

The species, called Micropterus cataractae and found in
rivers in Florida, Georgia and Alabama, has actually
been known by anglers for the last 50 years as the
shoal bass because it thrives in the shoals of rivers,
Burgess said. But no one was certain the fish was
different from its closest relative, the spotted bass,
until Williams and Burgess noted key differences
including coloration, absence of teeth on the tongue
and number of rows of scales.
"Our research should put to rest any questions about
whether it's a valid species or merely a variant of one
of the other species," Burgess said.
"It's the end of an era in the sense that all the other
bass and trout were discovered long ago, mostly in the
1700s and 1800s," said Burgess. "From now on,
scientists likely will describe only the smaller, cryptic
species that have avoided detection despite our best
Scientific identification of the fish is of interest to
Florida's huge sport-fishing industry, Burgess said,
because it paves the way for conservation efforts to
begin. Shoal bass face many threats including dams,
human population sprawl and the introduction of
non-native fish species, he said.
"Largemouth bass are the primary species for sport fishing
in fresh water here in Florida," he said. "There are
numerous bass fishing tournaments that attract thousands
of people to the state every year. The shoal bass, being a
relative of the largemouth bass, generates significant
interest among anglers in Florida as well as Georgia and
The shoal bass is much rarer than the largemouth bass
because it has a geographically limited range and more
particular habitat requirements.
Williams said shoal bass are threatened by habitat loss
caused by a series of dams on the Chattahoochee, Flint and
Apalachicola rivers. Unlike other bass found in deep
reservoirs and rivers, the shoal bass only lives in shallow
portions of rivers and large creeks.
Booming population growth around Atlanta is diminish
ing the quality of the Flint River, another favorite haunt of
the shoal bass. And a potential future problem is whether
the shoal bass will face competition for food and habitat as
other species of fish are introduced into Southeastern
rivers, he said.
"Now that we finally have formal recognition of this new
species of bass, we can move forward in carrying out
conservation programs and habitat protection programs
that we couldn't do in the past without a scientific name or
description," Williams said.
Randell Research Center
More than 650 people visited the museum's Randell Research Center near Ft. Myers for site tours last
year. The museum completed a long-term site development plan for this important archaeological site
and raised $141,000 (matched by $141,000 in state funds) for the first phase of this development. Plans
call for a teaching pavilion, public rest rooms, parking lot and the first phase of an interpreted walking
trail. Construction will begin in 2001.

The museums private support came from six sources.
Donations from non-alumni ($3.8 million), and alumni and
parents of current students ($1.1 million) accounted for more
than half of the money raised. Foundations ($675 293)
provided 8.8 percent of the total gift support, with
corporations ($395,631) and other organizations ($425,701)
rounding out the remaining private support groups. The states
matching gift program attracted many donors and provided
$1.2 million in additional support.
The University of Florida Foundation receives, invests and
administers private support for the museum. It is eligible
to receive charitable contributions under section 501(c)(3)
of the Internal Revenue Code, and the foundation is
certified as a direct support organization for the university.
Museum donors recognize the museum's desire to rank as
the premier collections-based natural history museum in
the Southeast. Given the current competition for limited
dollars from state and federal sources, however, the
museums success in achieving that standard of excellence
requires significant private endowments and high levels of
annual giving throughout the state and within local
communities. Your continued support will raise the
museum to even higher levels of excellence.
