Charles Marshall  A letter from the Director, January 2014

UCMP's impact on the literature

One measure of the significance of an institution is its contribution to the scientific literature. By this measure, use of our collections by past students, visitors and other scientists is truly impressive — in 2013 UCMP played a role in some 280 publications. Current UCMP students, postdocs, Museum staff, and faculty produced 53 peer-reviewed publications (listed in this newsletter), and some 82 publications in all. In fact, the list of UCMP publications is so long this year that the production team asked me to reduce the length of my letter! [A reference to the printed newsletter]

As we start the New Year, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to UCMP this past year. Your contributions make a big difference to what we can do, and help make UCMP the vibrant community that it is.

On behalf of all UCMP, best wishes for 2014!

Sincerely,
Charles Marshall
