H. G. Dyar, Bluebook 197-212, 1890-1895
About the Project
Have you ever heard of Dyar's Law? The now-standard biological rule measures the development of moths and butterflies and is named after National Museum of Natural History entomologist Harrison G. Dyar.
Before there could be Dyar's Law, however, there first had to be Dyar's field work! This set of notes details Dyar's work in 1890-95 through New York, and includes specimen numbers, dates, and other collecting observations. Explore the beginnings of Dyar's Law and help other volunteers transcribe this important scientific text.
