Title :

Systematic research on Afrotropical Heterocera: Past and present

Abstract :

The purpose of this communication is first and foremost of a practical nature, in that it aims to provide an overview over current systematic research being conducted on the moths of the Afrotropical Region. As such the paper was intended to serve as something of a counterpoint at the launch of an institute primarily dedicated to butterfly research. At any rate I was heartened to see that several of the other delegates present had an interest in moths.

        In addition, I will take a brief look at who practices taxonomy and systematics nowadays and in the past, and at the value accorded these disciplines in European and African cultures, as well as the resulting implications for conservation in an African context.
