达尔文所收集标本首度公开,英国自然历史博物馆大型生物展熠熠生辉。

OVER 22 million dead animals that have never been seen by the public before, were on display last week in London, Britain. The selection is one of the biggest and the best in the world and the Natural History Museum (自然历史博物馆) hopes that it will help people understand nature better.

People were able to examine the animals, which range from tiny insects that lived millions of years ago to the bones of dinosaurs and butterflies (蝴蝶) in amazing detail (细节).

The scientific specimens (标本) are all either stored in alcohol (酒精) or made in a fossil form and have been given to the new Darwin Centre (达尔文中心) by scientists and researchers over the last hundred years.

The centre, named after the world famous scientist Charles Darwin, will be open free to the public. It is part of the much larger Natural History Museum, which attracts over 2 million visitors a year.

The new museum has actual specimens caught by Darwin, including a parrotfish (鹦嘴鱼) and pipefish (尖嘴鱼) he caught while on his journey around the world. There are also lots of other specimens caught by famous explorers that lived over 150 years ago, which include a tusk (长牙) from an African elephant given by famous British scientist David Livingstone.

People can view specimens close up, watch videos of scientists at work, look at information on computers, and look up through the seven-storey storage hall to sense the huge scale of what's inside. They are also able to take guided tours and join live events with scientists.

Another section of the museum is being planned. When it opens in 2007, there will be an extra 28 million insects on display and 6 million plants.
