The notebook documents Russell Greenberg's field trip in Nicaragua in June 12- December 19, 1999. The field notes begin with the table of content; pages of the notebook are numbered. There appears to be multiple authors. Front flyleaf indicates contact information of Greenberg's colleagues in Nicaragua - Alejandra Martinez Salinas and Juana Isabel Matamoros. The field data collected consists of date, time, type, physical characteristics of flora observed, points of counts and calculations. Locations include Estelí in Nicaragua and other locations numbered per site (Oak #34, Acacia #2). Some notes contain information on leaves weight, number of bags, insects, and tree height.
