It is that last number, the specimens, and those who care for them, that makes all the rest tick. A “curator”, I have come to learn, can be a tricky thing to de ne, but I will o er a general de nition: a person who safeguards a specimen and/or a collection of specimens, and its legacy so that its value to knowledge, in all its myriad forms, is maximized. Hence, our curators, speaking generally, range from the volunteers and undergraduates who do collections work to faculty members who oversee the collections. In this sense, curation also applies to our exhibits and education sta , who safeguard specimens and who articulate much of their value when they are being displayed or used in programs like our increasingly popular Beaty Boxes. At the core of all this curation, however, rest our collections curators and curatorial assistants.  ese are the folks who oversee the work of volunteers and students, who liaise with the faculty members, consult on educational and exhibit’s use of the various specimens, facilitate research, send and receive specimen loans, give tours to students and the general public, and help to answer their many questions (I am sure I have forgo en a few things!).  ey also do more than their share of pinning insects, preparing and sorting herbarium sheets, “pickling”  shes and invertebrates, and preparing skins and fossils (and teaching others how to do it all!). Simply put, without curation sta  there would be no specimens and hence no BBM and all the good it does. To balance time and e ort to accomplish all these tasks can be a signi cant Dr. Eric TaylorDirector, Beaty Biodiversity Museum Professor, Department of ZoologyDirector, Fish Collectionchallenge and the BBM is lucky to have such a dedicated, commi ed, and engaged curation sta . In fact, this past year was a special one for curation because the  sh and marine invertebrate collections joined the ranks of the others by having curatorial assistants appointed to both (see their respective reports for more info). Already, these new curators have made great strides in bringing both collections back ‘up to speed’ with support characteristic of the other collections. Further, funding for existing positions in the Herbarium and the Spencer Entomological Collection was stabilized. In addition, the BBM was awarded a Museums Assistance Program Grant (a proposal led by Linda Jennings of the Herbarium) to harmonize, as much as possible, the various collections’ digital databases and develop a single search engine for the collections. Also, Dr. Jeanne e Whi on was the recipient of a Faculty of Science Excellence in Service Award, much of it owing to her work as BBM’s Herbarium Director. Finally, substantive discussions continue about faculty appointments tied directly to the BBM (all faculty currently associated with the BBM have appointments that rest within Botany or Zoology) – hope springs eternal! All-in-all, a great year for curation at the BBM and the tremendous work that the curators do is key to ful lling our ‘prime directive’.  e BBM is a partnership between the departments of Botany and Zoology and is the  agship public outreach vehicle for those departments and the Faculty of Science. In July 2019, Drs. Meigan Aronson and Vanessa Auld took up new appointments as Dean of Science and Head of the Department of Zoology, Derek Tanrespectively. We look forward to working with them in their new roles, and with Dr. Sean Graham (Head, Department of Botany).  e critical and ongoing support of the BBM from the faculty and departments is gratefully acknowledged. Finally, I wanted to thank Dr. Loren Rieseberg, Director of the Biodiversity Research Centre, for providing support to reinvigorate our Researchers Revealed initiative through the inspired video collaborations between researchers and our Exhibits and Design team (see “Online Exhibitions” on the BBM website). I hope all enjoy learning of the BBM’s work and accomplishments over the past year in the following pages.4 - Beaty Biodiversity Museum Annual ReportEDUCATION AND OUTREACHJackie ChambersEducation and Outreach ManagerNicole BalsdonEducation and Outreach CoordinatorNancy Lee Kashifa HafeezSheila ByersVincent SaysonAngela LiuMuseum InterpretersNUMBER OF PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS: 11,809 | TOTAL NUMBER OF PROGRAMS BOOKED: 461NUMBER OF WAY COOL TALKS: 11 | WAY COOL TALK VISITORS: 477 e Education & Outreach team share the stories of the research collections through school programs, public tours, activities, special events, and partnerships. Direct connections are made between biodiversity researchers and the public at our Way Cool and Nocturnal events—allowing visitors to meet the people behind the important research at the Biodiversity Research Centre and similar institutions.   In fall of 2018, we launched our Museum Collection Tours, six brand-new tours that delve into each of our six specimen collections.  ese tours match up with requests for more focused tours on the collections. Education & Outreach o ered 22 di erent bookable experiences, 16 of which relate directly to the BC curriculum for K–12 students.  is includes the successful Earth Experience, a full-day school program run in collaboration with the Paci c Museum of Earth. A new, free audio tour, launched in summer 2018, allows all visitors in the museum to listen to a guided tour at their own pace with their own devices.  is was the third year of our successful Beaty Box specimen loan program and we launched two ‘Seashore’ themed boxes available to teachers, educators, and community groups. Additional Beaty Boxes are being developed thanks to a generous private donation.   is has been a record-breaking year for school bookings and Beaty Box rentals, surpassing the participant numbers and revenue  gures of previous years. Our programming and outreach kits continue to be key revenue generators for the museum and allow us to continue to provide support for several low-income and inner-city schools to ensure students from across Vancouver have access to the museum.Derek TanDerek Tan Beaty Biodiversity Museum Annual Report – 5VOLUNTEERSOver 175 active education volunteers support us in sharing the stories of the research collections. Two of our volunteers, Greg and Margo, were featured in an issue of the BC Museums Association magazine, for their incredible dedication and reaching over 1,000 hours each. Along with other members of the museum team, volunteers are identi able in their red vests and are ready to answer questions and share stories with visitors. Volunteers also assist with events and special programming such as twice daily hands-on programming and Spring Break drop-in activities, public lectures, exhibit openings, and membership events. Volunteers are supported with learning opportunities on a weekly basis, and given in-depth workshops once monthly. Beaty Biodiversity Museum volunteers come from all walks of life, many di erent countries, and range from high school and post-secondary students to working and retired professionals. Our dedicated volunteers have an understanding and an enthusiasm for the museum, which they readily share with visitors; this team of knowledgeable and friendly people adds a personal touch to the visitor experience and strengthens the connections among the museum, the collections, and the community. VOLUNTEER HOURS: 9,684 ACTIVE VOLUNTEERS: 177Alirod AmeriGREG SHAPIRO &  MARGO MACDONALD Beaty Biodiversity Museum38Bringing natural history collections to life requires the enthusiasm and care of talented volunteers, and at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum in Vancouver, we are fortunate to have Greg Shapiro and Margo MacDonald on our education team. With over 1500 and 1200 volunteer hours, respectively, they have contributed the most volunteer hours to the Beaty. Each shift, they engage visitors in one-on-one conversations on a wide range of biodiversity topics, while supporting up-close exploration of real museum specimens. Time and time again, our visitors mention these special conversations and explorations; volunteers like Greg and Margo truly make a visit memorable. We’ve had the pleasure of watching them both grow over the years. Greg has been with the museum since 2010, coming in every Friday morning. He is always happy to chat with every group of visitors that approaches the whale station, eager to learn about them as he shares his experiences and travels. Margo started on Thursday mornings in 2012, using some of her time to learn more about birds, becoming well-versed in the birds of Vancouver and B.C. Both are passionate about educating museum visitors, regardless of the topic.Margo and Greg are both incredible, welcoming role models for our new volunteers. They both have a passion for lifelong learning, and are eager to share their knowledge with others every week. Our student volunteers can rely on them for support and encouragement, as well as comradery and friendship behind the scenes. Their love of nature and science is contagious, and their dedication to educating visitors is admirable. We look forward to them coming in every week, and miss them when they take well-deserved time away. It takes a team of diverse, intelligent, skilled, and positive people to share the excitement of biodiversity with visitors. Greg and Margo are our two most dedicated volunteers, and we truly would not be the same without them. Nicole BalsdonVOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHTBCMA Spring 2019 Roundup Issue 274: Reconciliation and RepatriationAlirod Ameri6 - Beaty Biodiversity Museum Annual ReportPARTNERSHIPSOver 3,500 undergraduate and graduate students from UBC and other post-secondary institutions visited the museum as part of a course. We hosted three pre-service teachers on Community Field Experience practicum from UBC and SFU, and in collaboration with the Faculty of Education we are providing opportunities for future professionals to gain hands-on experience. We delivered sessions on successful  eld trip planning for pre-service teachers, and a class for Master of Museum Education students on curriculum and teaching in museums.  We also saw an increase in collaborations with organizations and events both within UBC (courses, professors & TAs, Faculty of Science ‘Science Rendezvous’) and o  campus (participating in Science Literacy Week, VSB Scientist in Residence Program, Nature Vancouver centennial celebrations, International Ornithological Congress, Science World’s Symbiosis project, Auckland War Memorial Museum, and the Educators’ Symposium at the BC Museums Association Conference). An important collaboration was with MOA and six communities represented through  ve cultural centres: Musqueam (Musqueam Cultural Education Centre), Squamish (Squamish-Lil’wat Cultural Centre), Lil’wat (Squamish-Lil’wat Cultural Centre), Heiltsuk (Heiltsuk Cultural Education Centre), Nisga’a (Nisga’a Museum) and Haida (Haida Gwaii Museum and Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay) in co-creating the Culture at the Centre exhibits.   ese opportunities help to move the museum beyond its four walls and allow us to make new connections and promote a broader recognition of our skills and expertise.  rough support and funding from UBC Campus + Community Planning and work with the PME, and the MEED graduate student group we continued to o er our monthly Nature Club to families on campus. Funding from a Virtual Museum of Canada grant and a Wheaton Precious Metals donation allowed us to begin planning to enhance our virtual and onsite learning opportunities at the museum. _––Derek TanDerek TanCulture at the Centre opening at MOAFisheries and Oceans CanadaOntario Arts CouncilAssociation of Natural History Museums of CanadaVancouver AquariumUBC Museum of AnthropologyRoyal British Columbia MuseumRoyal Ontario MuseumUBC Biodiversity Research CentreMusqueamPacific Museum of EarthBritish Columbia Institute of TechnologyUBC ForestryHaida Gwaii MuseumGenome CanadaUBC EOSC 425 – PalaeontologyDavid EllingsenGenome BCUniversity of LethbridgeLorraine RoyCatherine M.

Our digital audience is larger and more engaged than ever; particularly with current issues in biodiversity research, which frequently generate conversations on our social media channels. For Women’s History Month, an Instagram and Facebook series focusing on the women working in our collections a racted a wide audience keen to hear more about women in science. In events, a new collaboration with students from Emily Carr University of Art + Design yielded our best-a ended evening event to date, with 190 visitors for our August 2018 Nocturnal: Making Wave[form]s. January 2019 saw the launch of our collections-focused Nocturnals, with a well-received behind the scenes tour of the Herbarium. Our Nocturnal event strand continues to grow, as we have commi ed to programming a unique event each month, including partnerships with the Paci c Museum of Earth and Science Slam Canada.  e production and launch of an audio tour has made the museum collections more accessible to visually impaired visitors and our online audience, including those unable to visit the museum in person.  Going forward, continuing upgrades to the museum website are focused on making our exhibits, events, collections, and education programs more accessible, and be er showcasing our connection to research.Derek TanDerek Tan35,07436,16637,54738,16842,36746,540 Beaty Biodiversity Museum Annual Report – 9EVALUATIONSINCREASE IN VISITORSHIP OVER PREVIOUS YEAR: 9.85%NUMBER OF MEMBERS: 320 e Museum Evaluation & Assessment Working Group, led by Education & Outreach, brings together all departments to discuss visitor studies.

Fossils, plants, insects, marine invertebrates, tetrapods, or  sh specimen records can now be queried in combination with a date, a locality, or a collector. In June 2019, the BBM Digital Museum goes live on the BBM website.  e general public, including UBC students, will have access to three quarters of a million BBM specimens. Although this is a mere 35 per cent of the BBM estimated holdings of 2.2 million, it is a huge leap forward. In order to make this uni ed search interface possible, many backend technical improvements occurred.  e sheer number of specimen records and their high-resolution associated images required a rethinking on how to manage, compress, and store information on the designated computer servers. A huge plus of this database makeover was the implementation of a geolocation standardizer. Many of the specimen records were georeferenced for the  rst time. Having a red marker appear on a zoomable map helps users be er understand this locality information.  is project has brought the Fossil and the Marine Invertebrate Collections from complete data obscurity into the spotlight.NUMBER OF DATABASED RECORDS: 726,203NUMBER OF GEOREFERENCED RECORDS: 569,936NUMBER OF IMAGED SPECIMENS: 133,532David RowswellDatabase and System Developer  A one-time Museum Assistance Program Grant, Department of Canadian Heritage, and a grant from Canadensys, Canada Foundation for Innovation funded Phase One.  e search is on for Phase Two funding: ‘Standardizing and Georeferencing the Remaining Two- irds of the BBM Specimen Records.’ Project completion would enable thorough online exploration of databased specimens via the BBM Digital Museum.Derek TanTHESE SPECIMENS WERE ALL COLLECTED 50 YEARS AGO IN BC.

A Big Year e CTC had a ‘Big Year’ in two stellar ways. We were visited by tetrapod curators from every continent except Antarctica plus we prepared an extraordinary number of ‘Big’ specimens. Our dermestid beetle colonies munched their way through two small whales, a sea lion,  ve cougars, a black bear, four alligators, two pelicans, and a sandhill crane producing many new skeletons for the collection. In addition to morphometrics and tissue samples, all of the skins were painstakingly prepared. For the two yacare caimans this was a labour of love.  eir hides are so well-ossi ed that each needle hole has to be pre-drilled. Some of our volunteers commented that being in the preparatory lab was like being in a dentist o  ce due to the whine of the high-speed drill.  ough dominating the drying racks and lab space in general, this list represents only 4 per cent of the specimens prepared this year. Vancouver hosted the International Ornithological Congress (IOC) in August.  e CTC convened two sessions speci cally for curators, one of which was held at the BBM.  e CTC hosted researchers from: South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Colombia, Russia, France, Israel, England, Switzerland, and  ve di erent museums and research centres in Germany. From North America, the CTC hosted researchers from the Smithsonian, the Museum of Comparative Zoology and a myriad of other Canadian and American universities and museums.Dr. Darren IrwinDirector and CuratorIldiko SzaboCollections Curator of BirdsChris StinsonCuratorial Assistant of Mammals, Reptiles, and AmphibiansGraduate students assisted: • Kenny Askelson, PhD candidate, Irwin Lab: Imaging of the global screech owl collection for R colordistance analysis; provided tissue samples• Leo Wood, MSc candidate, Altshuler Lab: Wing ligaments and muscles: material properties of the deltoideus pars prototagialis• Jasmin Wong, PhD candidate, Altshuler Lab: Aeroelastic  u er of  ight feathers• Vikram Baliga, Post-doctoral Fellow, Altshuler Lab: Capabilities and limitations of musculoskeletal morphing in the avian wing• Andrew Trites, Stephanie Renwick, Melanie Talkington, Trites Lab: Corset eyelet material identi cation• Alexandra Fahey, Undergraduate Research Project, Burton Lab: Fisher skull morphometrics• Veen Lab (Quest University), Melon Davis: Test decoys for camera detection of radiant heat emi ed by birdsUBC courses and organizations supported:• BIOL 342 - Integrative Biology: Collections experience for 40 students• BIOL 427 - Ornithology and Herpetology: Guest lecturer and taught one week of labs in addition to regular lab teaching assistance• VISA 321 - Intermediate Drawing II• FRST 395 - Forest Wildlife Ecology and Management • BIOL 372 (UBCO) - Field Ornithology: Taught one lab and specimen loans for lab identi cationDerek TanPine martenMartes ameircana Beaty Biodiversity Museum Annual Report – 15COWAN TETRAPOD COLLECTIONIn the community:• International Ornithological Congress (IOC) held in Vancouver: Ildiko Szabo convened two sessions, one at the conference and the other at the BBM.• Bioblitz: Tombstone Territorial Park, Yukon and Whistler, BC, both in collaboration with the  Spencer Entomological Collection.• Participated in the following collecting trips: Mitlenach Island, BC (insects), Coalmont, BC (Canada jays and spruce grouse).• Member of SNOWStorm Project on snowy owls.• Nature Vancouver: table-top displays of avian specimens to complement the evening lecture.• Stanley Park Ecology Society: led two ‘You O er see Beavers’ and two ‘Frog-a-Palooza’ night walks.Artist visits: Catherine Stewart, Eszter Burghardt, Karen Yurkovich, Colleen McLaughlin Barlow, Luke Fedorchuk, Richard Marcus, Margit Boronkay, Joyce MajiskiNon-UBC courses and organizations supported:• Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (France), Jérôme Fuchs: Specimen exchange of common birds.  e purpose of these exchanges is for both collections to acquire tissues and the associated skin voucher for use as outlier in genetic research• University of Porto (Portugal), Philippe Gaubert: Pangolin destructive sampling for speciation study• University of Adelaide (Australia), Peri Stenhouse, PhD candidate: Two-day bird-prep workshop/job shadowing training• University of Lethbridge (Alberta),  eresa Burg, Brendan Graham in collaboration with Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (California), Carla Cicero; UBCO, John Woods • Algonquin Provincial Park (Ontario), Dan Strickland: Canada jay three-day intensive morphology research project using specimens belong to the UBC BBM, Royal Ontario Museum, Royal BC Museum: morphometric measurements, toe-pad tissue collected for analysis• University of Lausanne (Switzerland), Alexandre Roulin: Barn owl plumage analysis • Senckenberg Museum-Dresden (Germany), Martin Päckert and Frederik Albrecht: Red crossbill morphology research• Museum of New Zealand, Rodrigo Salvador: Morphometric analysis of New Zealand bird beaks• Royal Ontario Museum, Oliver Haddrath: Blue whale bone sample for genome sequencing project• Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Danae Frier: Five-day guest preparatorship with an emphasis on bird prep and fat removal for all types of tetrapod specimens• Simon Fraser University (BC) & University of Groningen (Netherlands), D.

Marine invertebrates possess a startling variety of forms, textures, and colors, and our collection contains some truly fantastic examples of this diversity.   is year, the collection received funding from the Department of Zoology to hire a dedicated, part-time curatorial assistant, Dr. Colin MacLeod. Dr. MacLeod will work closely with the collection Director to document recent donations, establish research and education collaborations, and improve the visibility of the Marine Invertebrate Collection. In order to expand our collection of Canadian marine invertebrates, we have begun collaborations with the Harley and O’Connor Labs at the University of British Columbia, and the Bam eld Marine Sciences Centre on the outer coast of Vancouver Island. We look forward to displaying many fantastic Canadian invertebrate samples in the near future! We are also pleased to announce a new relationship with the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, who have been working with the MIC sta  to identify potential causes of a die-o  in the olive snail (Olivella biplicata) populations of Neah Bay, Washington.

Last year we initiated our pilot Herbarium Collection BioBlitz inviting 260 UBC undergraduate students from two  rst-year courses (SCIE 001 and BIOL 121) to learn about using collections in research. In return, the students helped us with a collection inventory, where we know our records to be inaccurate, with many specimens un-digitized.  is year we doubled our undergraduate student impact with 550 UBC undergraduate students contributing to the Collection BioBlitz virtually and face-to-face spanning  rst- to fourth-year courses (BIOL 121, BIOL 209, BIOL 343, BIOL 412 and GEOB 407).

Our regional insect surveys continued, including our third year a ending a Yukon Bioblitz (Tombstone Territorial Park), our sixth year a ending a Whistler/Pemberton Bioblitz, and a second year visiting Mitlenatch Island.  e Vancouver Convention Centre hosted a conference in November for over 3,500 entomologists from around the world, and several hundred of them made their way to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum for a Dr. Wayne MaddisonDirectorKaren NeedhamCollections CuratorTiia Haapalainen Curatorial Assistant ( January to March)Don Gri  thsImaging VolunteerSPECIMENS: 650,000 | ACCESSIONED THIS YEAR: 2,500DATABASED RECORDS: 125,000 | NEW THIS YEAR: 5,000IMAGES OF SPECIMENS: 42,000 | NEW THIS YEAR: 2,000IDENTIFICATIONS FOR THE PUBLIC: 250 | VOLUNTEER HOURS: 500Thanu Eagalletour of the museum and the entomology collection. We thank researchers from the Canadian Museum of Nature, Hokkaido University, Rutgers University, and Washington State University for staying on a er the conference to curate sections of our collection. We are still working on incorporating their annotations.  anks to funding from the Yukon Government and Environment Canada, over 4,000 records of Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Alaska specimens were added to our database. Work on our webpages continued with photos added for our largest moth family (Noctuidae) and for many of the species new to our collection (mainly from bioblitz e orts and visiting researchers). Field work on salticid spiders in Russia and New Zealand added many species new to our collection, and some new to science. A paper was published presenting an entirely undescribed salticid radiation from New Guinea, using specimens in the Spencer Entomological Collection from Wayne Maddison’s 2008 expedition. Dr. Maddison made considerable progress on several other taxonomic papers using specimens from the Spencer, including a review of the common group Si icini, a monograph of the Pellena us jumping spiders, a new lapsiine from Mexico, and new nannenines of Malaysia and Singapore. Phylogenetic papers are in progress on pellenines, plexippines, baviines, and Mexigonus.Donations:Curatorial work continued, incorporating mosquito donations from Dr. Peter Belton (BC material; ca. 2,000 specimens) and Dr. Dan Peach (Yukon material; ca. 500 specimens).

He has focussed on reorganization and correction of the considerable holdings in the  sh collection.  is has resulted in what we feel is a more accurate account of 51,928 records involving 3,770 unique taxonomic names at the species level and 459 names of higher taxonomic orders. We are now focussing on obtaining a more accurate estimate of the actual number of specimens and records of species from various watershed surveys.Dr. Eric B.
