Included are proposals for research projects, reviews of proposals, awards of funding for proposals, budget information, information on conferences, and administrative memoranda and correspondence. Records are in Spanish and English.
Of particular interest is a brief history of the BIOLAT project, prepared by Terry L. Erwin; two major training programs in Bolivia and Peru; and the Rainforest Workshop (1991).
