Title Review

Several species of living organisms bring about deterioration of museum materials. Damage recognition and identification of the causative agent is necessary for adopting preventive and control measures. Supported with references to the relevant global research work, this book provides important scientific information on the biology of various species of damaging organisms, the nature of damage done and the control measures for the safe preservation of museum materials including cultural property and natural history specimens. Included is a brief report on an experimental study on the feeding preferences of select insects (Anthrenus flavipes, Attagenus gloriosae, and Tinea pellionella), aimed at identifying the types of museum materials these insects are most likely to attack.

Dr. S.M. Nair is a former Director, National Museum of Natural History, New Delhi.
