Natural History’s Place in Science and Society

I vaguely recollect YNU publishing something about the decline of Natural History. As yet I've been unable to find it but I came across the following free article from Bioscience during my searches.

Tewksbury, J.J., Anderson, J.G.T., Bakker, J.D., Billo, T.J., Dunwiddie, P.W., Groom, M.J., Hampton, S.E., Herman, S.G., Levey, D.J., Machnicki, N.J., Del Rio, C.M., Power, M.E., Rowell, K., Salomon, A.K., Stacey, L., Trombulak, S.C., and Wheeler, T. a. 2014. Natural history’s place in science and society. Bioscience 64: 300–310

You'll find it at http://bioscience.oxfordjournals.org/content/64/4/300 it's actually a good read

Re: Natural History’s Place in Science and Society

This subject, or rather issues presented within this paper, are currently the topics of hot debate within Dipterists Forum. Additional fuel can be found amongst all the Linnaean Society BRC papers.
Please look around for more useful items on this subject, I wrote the entire 2.5 sides in the Review section of DF Bulletin 80, time someone else found goodies of interest and relevance
We do more than just Diptera, we need all the structures that support our interests like taxonomy, teaching, technology etc. etc.
Good hunting
