Abstract[EN] During the academic year, most scientists work in their offices and labs, but summer is the best time for expeditions and sampling. Mountains, fields, rivers, seas, oceans and archaeological sites- an uncountable wealth of natural science knowledge can be hiding anywhere. After the fieldwork, the researchers return to the Museum labs to begin their analysis. This systematic experimental methodology generates studies about the phylogeny, morphology and phylogeography of hundreds of species, the fossil record, kinship relations and their evolutionary patterns, animal behaviour from an evolutionary perspective, the Earth’s movements and many other aspects. Different research lines are often combined, and all this scientific wealth produced by the conjunction of the natural sciences in a single museum gives rise to new projects and new lines of work. There is possibly one major aspect that is shared by all these Departments and expeditions: the protection and restoration of the natural environment and the sustainable use of natural resources.
