dc.description.abstract List of specimens collected between May 13, 1929 and May 2, 1931 by the Mission zoologique franco-anglo-américaine à Madagascar. Data includes type of animal, size and gender classification, location collected, collector and specimen numbers. The first two leaves of the book provide an explanatory diagram of the specimen tags and a list of abbreviations used throughout. The entries are written in many hands; presumably by the individual collectors. The Mission zoologique franco-anglo-américaine à Madagascar was an expedition to Madagascar coordinated with and represented by delegates from French, English and American institutions. Archbold's father had provided the sponsorship for the American Museum of Natural History to participate, and Archbold joined the expedition as photographer and collector. Richard Archbold was a sponsor of scientific study, mountaineer, aviator and research associate at the American Museum of Natural History from 1931. He established Archbold Expeditions (formerly Biological Explorations) which sponsored field work, a collection and curatorial staff at the American Museum of Natural History. He also founded the Archbold Biological Station in Florida in 1941 as a center for scientific research and ecological study. One of the first to recognize the value of air transport in expeditionary work, Archbold led three of the New Guinea Expeditions, the third of which culminated in the seaplane Guba II's historic transcontinental flight. en_US
