Field notes: Mexico

About the Project

** We're almost there - please help us review the last several pages!** These are James Peters's field notes, written during his expedition to the Mexican state of Michoacan and other areas in 1949 and 1950. Peters was seeking out reptile specimens and his handwritten, almost daily entries often include sketches, details about his examination of specimens and important notations about the specimens' particular habitats. The plants, soil, and surrounding environment, travel time, elevations, and air and water temperatures are all valuable data to researchers studying species in this area.

Join us and other Digital Volunteers in transcribing this work from early in Peters's career. Transcribing this valuable information makes it easier to access and helps researchers today analyze this data in new ways.
