Spotlight on Amateur Naturalists
Contributions to Vertebrate Zoology
This presentation was produced by Vertebrate Zoology Librarian, Courtney Ann Shaw, Ph.D. The display concentrates primarily on English language sources. Copyright restrictions cause the pictorial emphasis to features works published before 1923. Publications following 1923 are noted in text format. Unless otherwise noted, images were digitally scanned by staff at the Smithsonian Institution. The bibliography includes full citations for all primary source materials, as well as publications that may be of interest for further reading. Other SI Libraries contributing journals and books include the Natural History Main Branch, the National Zoological Park, the Cooper-Hewitt, and the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History.
Many thanks to Drs’ Roger B. Clapp, Robert Hoffmann, James B. Murphy, Roy McDiarmid, Victor Springer, Bruce Collette, and Stan Weitzman for their scientific information. Susan Frampton and Amy Levin of the SI Libraries, James Murphy, and Roy McDiarmid of the Amphibian and Reptiles Division, Alice Clarke of the American Art/National Portrait Gallery library, and the Vertebrate Zoology web committee contributed greatly during the editing of content. Finally, much appreciation to Diane Pitassy who edited and formatted the content of this presentation for online display.
