The volume documents Richard Osman's field work studying plankton in south New England during October 19, 1999 - June 5, 2000. There is a pasted insert that is a comparison sheet of individuals picking on Pine Island during October 15-18, 1999. The entries are headed with location (e.g. Pine Island), date range, sample number, followed by a list of fauna type (e.g. snail, copepods) and quantity. These are sometimes followed with remarks about collecting. Some samples were collected from rafts. Some entries include drawings.
