Other AbstractA pioneering appraisal of Porifera collections was made by Shirley Stone in 1986, curator of the sponge collection housed in The Natural History Museum ,London. Her efforts were primarily focused on old historical collections .Ever since ,in spite of global efforts to convey biodiversity –based studies ,such as on the systematics of extant species ,no light has been shed on an updated database on the care status and localization of poriferan collections .Given the extensive bibliography on sponge biodiversity produced along the last decades ,coupled to the fact that a vast majority of sponges needs to be worked on in the laboratory in order to be identified ,one can infer that new collections have certainly been assembled ,and old collections became much larger .It is the objective of this contribution to summarize the status of sponge collections around the world by the end of year 2005,by assembling a database to include the following pieces of information:1.offcial name of institution ;2.abbrevation or acronym ;3.official mailing address;3. mailing address of Porifera collection manager;4.name and E-mail of curator in charge of Porifera by end of 2005;5.additional staff currently working with Porifera;6.size of collection;7.approximate proportion of collection data already entered on a database;8.geographical coverage (political or geographic origin os collections as a percentage of the whole collection);9.type series housed (and major authors &any expeditions of significance );10.fire security and climate control;11.availablity to outsiders (both physical access and potential to borrow specimens by mail );and 12.prospect of expansion (including acceptance of collections made by others ).Data will be presented on a national /continental size frame .The MNRJ Brazilian collection is offered here as an example .1.Museu N acional;2.MNRJ;3.Quinta da BoaVista,s/n,20940-040,Rio de Janeiro.RJ.Brazil;4.E.Hajdu(hajdu@acd.ufrj.br)G.Muricy(muricy@acd.frj.br);5.one mporary technician;6.14000 catalogued specimens.0 uncatalogued,and corresponding slide collection–nearly70% databased;7.90%Brazil,10%elsewhere(Caribbean,NE Atlantic,Medterranean,SE Aisa,SE Pacific );8.96 primary type specimens (24 holotypes and 72 paratypes ,mainly form the work by Hajdu,Muricy et coll),83 schizotypes (mainly Boury-Esnault ,Hentschel,Ridley&Dendy, Sollas ,Van Soest ),3 syntypes and 160 microscopic preparations form type specimens,major expeditions:N.O.“Almirante Saldanha” REVIZEE;9.manually operated fire extinguishers ,large sized air conditioners to be installed in the near future ;10.available upon contact with curators, DNA access upon obtention of special permits;11.the collection is growing nearly exponentially of new building planned for the near future ;and 12.possibly double in a decade, usually accepts any collections made by others.
