Margaret S. Collins - Peru and Guyana, notes, 1985
About the Project
The first African American woman in her field of entomology, Margaret S. Collins was focused on termites. Getting out to do extensive field research was essential to her work, which included discovering a new species, the Florida dampwood termite Neotermes luykxi. The notes in this journal are terse but reveal what she thought was important to remember both for her research and for the daily activities of the expdeition.
