Abstract

The box of slides documents the field work of William Osman relating benthic marine life, 1978-1979. Slides show images of plates that have been submerged in order to document species growing in the respective area. Slides contain location identifier, possibly month and year (e.g. 7.78), and an unidentified numbers (e.g. 6-33). They organized into four columns. Each column is headed with what appears to be a station identifier on the sheets of paper in the top of the box (16N, 5N, 5S, and 16S).
