Biological collections preserve the history of our biodiversity, helping us to assess its distribution in time and space. It is in these spaces that researchers and environmental service providers can consult and study the collected materials, helping the country to responsibly appropriate its natural resources.
Museum collections and collections are important for several areas of knowledge, such as biology, biochemistry, genetics, evolution, geology, biogeography, ecology, conservation and management of natural resources, climatology, medicine, biotechnology, toxicology, legislation, among others.
