Abstract

The slides document the field work of James Lynch relating to farming and mist netting in Quintana Roo, Mexico, circa 1983-1993. Slides are stamped with month and year developed and contain captions describing habitat, vegetation, and locations. Images show aspects of farming (e.g. irrigation systems, clearing forest), netting birds, and colleagues in the field. Locations are often identified with ranch names.
