Date Range:
1923 - 1923
Topic:
Ornithology
Zoology

Description:
The Tanager expedition was a joint effort of the Bureau of the Biological Survey (U.S. Department of Agriculture), the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, and the United States Navy. The expedition name came from the converted World War I minesweeper used for the voyage. The expedition’s work in the northwest Hawaiian Islands related to a decree by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1909 that called for the establishment of a bird reservation in the area that would be the responsibility of the Biological Survey. US Navy primarily gathered navigational and other types of data on the region, while the US Biological Survey and the Bishop Museum studied area’s flora and fauna, including marine organisms. Staff also dealt with eliminating a population of rabbits introduced to Laysan Island in 1909 that had caused serious ecological damage by decimating vegetation. The expedition was led by Alexander Wetmore, assistant biologist for the US Biological Survey. Participants studied and collected seals, birds, turtles and other animals and plants of the region. Locations visited included northwest Hawaiian Islands, Wake Island, and Johnston Island.

Under the Walter Rathbone Bacon Traveling Scholarship, established by Virginia Purdy Bacon in order to promote the fauna of regions outside of the United States, Dr. Bartsch conducted faunal studies of certain groups of land and fresh water mollusks of the West Indies. Work was done in the rainy season because this is the season when mollusks are most active and it is easier to conduct fieldwork. During the trips other animals were collected, such as iguanas, turtles and hermit crabs, and given to the National Zoological Park. The expedition was carried out over the course of three field seasons. Destinations include West Indies - Cuba; Puerto Rico, Lesser Antilles, Islands of Margarita, Orchilla and Dutch West Indies; Southern Bahamas, Islands of South coast of Cuba and Caymans.

The Sargasso Sea Eel Expedition of the German research vessels Anton Dohrn and Friedrich Heincke studied eels [Anguilla spp.] in the North Atlantic, February to May 1979. The two ships were provided by the Federal Republic of Germany, and the expedition was organized by International Council for the Exploration of the Sea and the European Inland Fishery Advisory Committee. Leading the expedition was one of the world’s most renowned eel scientists, German biologist Friedrich-Wilhelm Tesch. Collections of adult eels, larvae, and eggs were made during the expedition by using different methods of trawling for roughly 111 hours during the period of March 7 to April 23. Observations were also made concerning deep sea fishes, invertebrates, and flora in the region.

Civilian scientists included staff from the US National Museum, Leonard P. Schultz, Curator of Ichthyology, and Joseph P. E. Morrison, Curator of Division of Mollusks. They studied the relative abundance of flora and fauna before and after the atom bomb tests. Specimens were collected for the purpose of comparison and to make possible a study of anatomical variations among the various island fish populations. The biological survey collected plants and animals on and around Bikini, Eniwetok, Rongelap and Rongerik Atolls.
