ADVANCE FOR USE FRIDAY, JULY 5 AND THEREAFTER - In this May 9, 2013 photo, Richard Lariviere, president and CEO of Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History, takes part in an interview with the Associated Press. The museum, one of the world's pre-eminent research centers with a 25 million-piece collection of plants and animals used to examine everything from genetics to climate change, is facing budget problems that is forcing it to cut research staff. Lariviere says the museum is poised to recover financially within two years. But some scientists say the cuts in its research operations will be significant. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
