Abstract

The notebook documents the work of Druid Wilson relating to specimens from Florida, 1963-1964. There is an index listing month (March, November, December 1963; January 1964), identifiers (Y-1 through Y-138), and page numbers and faunal index. It appears that these include notes from Wilson's "preliminary field book" notes that may have been discarded once content was copied. Entries are numbered and include a varying range of detail such as: descriptions of specimens, date, location where collected, sometimes identification and notes on species abundance, USGS specimen number, collector name, and remarks. Includes inserts.
