Abstract

Field notes kept by Frank Smith during investigations at Tolland, Colorado, 26 June to 16 August 1916. These seem to be field notes taken with a class (possibly a class he taught). The first page contains a list of locations and corresponding range of collector numbers and dates. Smith collects a wide variety of specimens including frogs, snakes, salamander, sponges, crustaceans, and algae. Locations where Smith collected include but are not limited to Park Lake, Lake Eldrra, lakes near Rollinsville, Crater Lakes, Arapahoe Lake, and Echo Lake. Also included is a checklist (plot) chart with specimens along y axis and location on the x axis.
