Bailey - Field notes, Texas and New Mexico, May 2-October 1, 1901
About the Project
How long do you think it takes to thoroughly study an ecosystem? In the summer and early fall of 1900, Vernon Bailey had ranged between westernmost Texas and northern California studying and collecting plant and animal specimens for the U.S. Bureau of Biological Survey. Now, a year later, he returns to his field study of biodiversity in Texas and New Mexico. This field notebook contains his notes during this time, including a list of scientific names of bird specimens collected, a plant catalog of specimens no. 320 - 465 and travel itinerary information.
Join digital volunteers to help us transcribe these notes, making them more accessible and useful to today's biodiversity researchers.
