The result was a reconstruction of the classification of animals upon a genealogical basis, fresh investigation of the development of animals, and early attempts to determine their genetic relationships. Nonetheless, all those basic and advance studies in ornithology were initially begun from bird�s collection that could not be found in other research institutions or universities in Indonesia.
