Vernon Orlando Bailey - Field notes, New Mexico, May 16-October 14, 1903
About the Project
**Help us wrap this up!** Have you ever wondered about what kind of plants and animals can survive in New Mexico's arid and harsh climate? Learn about the state's rich biodiversity with the United States Department of Agriculture's chief field naturalist Vernon Orlando Bailey. Bailey traveled throughout New Mexico collecting specimens (including one vibrant flower pressing!) and recording his observations and collections? lists of plants and mammals in this field notebook from May to October of 1903.
Join us in transcribing another challenging Bailey field book and help us make these important documents more accessible to scholars and researchers.
