Harriman Alaska Series, Vol. 8 : Insects, Part I (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from Harriman Alaska Series, Vol. 8: Insects, Part I The entomologist of the Harriman Alaska Expedition was Trevor Kincaid, Professor of Biology in the University of the State of Washington, at Seattle. His zeal and activity may be inferred from the fact that in two months he obtained about insects, representing a thousand species. On the return of the Expedition this material was distributed to a dozen spec ialists, who have worked up the various groups. The resulting papers, 18 in number, are here brought together in two volumes. The collections contained at least half a dozen new genera, 344 new species, and a still larger number previously unknown from Alaska.
