The major goals of the program were to learn what plants and animals occurred on the islands, the seasonal variations in their numbers and reproductive activities, and the distribution and population of the pelagic birds in that area. These field notes consist primarily of ectoparasite information collected on this survey. Materials include catalogues and data sheets.
