The museum's history
The rich and fascinating history of the museum, from Leopold II to the present day.
Origin of the collections
How did the vast heritage of the AfricaMuseum end up in Tervuren?
Artificial lakes, a paradise for parasites?
A tiny North American freshwater snail, found in large numbers in Lake Kariba (Zimbabwe), can fuel the spread of infectious diseases. Artificial lakes are especially vulnerable to invasive species, which travel the world thanks to globalization.
European Journal of Taxonomy volume 500 is now online!
Since its launch in 2011, EJT has published 1791 new taxa (1602 new species). Taxonomic research enables biologists to better understand and study biodiversity and evolution.
