Martin H. Moynihan - Diglossa (Flower piercers) (4 of 4)
About the Project
Scientist or administrator, can you be both? Resident Naturalist Martin Moynihan's personal papers are filled with his field notes studying many Central and South American species. These notes here are the fourth set in his study of Diglossa, called flower piercers for the way they feed. By this point, Moynihan had served as the Resident Naturalist of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute for six years, at work transforming the research station into one recognized globally for its productivity. Join in with other volunteers and travel with Moynihan through four South American countries as you transcribe his research observations.
