Prószyński, Prof. Dr. J.

Prószyński, Prof. Dr. J. Looking back on 50 years of my full time employment as a scientist (from September 1955) I consider top results of my life the following two kinds of achievements.

1. Two synthetic works on taxonomy of Salticidae: the present Internet monograph "Salticidae (Araneae) of the World" (still being developed) and the new "Global species database of Salticidae (Araneae)" (in preparation but already available in the Internet).

These contains summary of all my scientific results, on the background of all studies on Salticidae since Clerck (1757), all over the World.

2. Making a life success the 1967 setback (prevention to come for received Post-Doc scholarship at Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, by refusal to extend my passport by my country Authorities) by undertaking organization (from point zero) of the Department of Biology (later Zoology) in a newly established provincional Teachers Training College, in Sielce, Poland. I spent there 20 years, setting the character of the Deparment and developing it as a center for research on Salticidae and students' education. After my depature the work is being continued by my collaborators, led by Professor Marek Zabka.

Now, after 33 years of development, the educational level of the Department is confirmed by recent positive evaluation by the State Attestation of Universities Commission; over 2000 students received MSc degree in biology there. As a research establishment, the level is testified by the names of researchers, who published over 150 scientific papers. The Department organized a European Arachnological Symposium in 1996 and now proposes to organize an International Arachnological Congress in 2010.
