Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of three websites and four blogs maintained by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) as they existed on January 2, 2014.

The primary SERC website includes information about SERC's mission, facilities, research, and school and public programs. It also includes press releases.

The "Shorelines: Life and Science at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center" blog details the discoveries of SERC's environmental scientists, the weird creatures they have encountered, and the strange but true science of the coasts. The first post to the blog was in October 2009.

The "SERC Home School" blog is for students enrolled in SERC's home school classes and their parents. It includes materials for classes as well as updates and other information. The first post was in March 2011.

The "Ecosystems on the Edge" website provides information about ecosystems that are literally and figuratively on the edge as well as information on how to protect them. Due to technical issues, video content was not captured as part of this accession.

The "Estuary Chesapeake" blog is an exchange between teachers, parents, SERC staff, and students related to field trips for the Estuary Chesapeake program. The program allows students to study estuarine ecology on the Rhode River and connect environmental issues of the watershed to human impacts. Although on a blog platform, it is organized more like a traditional website than a blog.

The "SERC Bio Block Course" blog is a resource hub for a marine biology course offered by SERC. This accession does not include password-protected content, the majority of the content on the blog.

The "Global Tree Banding Project" website documents the Smithsonian Institution's Global Tree Banding Project which originated within SERC but is now part of a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution, TakingITGlobal, and Microsoft Partners in Learning. The project allows students around the globe to monitor the rate at which their local trees grow and learn how that rate corresponds to Smithsonian Institution research as well as compare their work to other students world-wide. The website includes information about the project and provides instructions and resources. This accession does not include password-protected content.

Materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records documenting the administration of the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program (GLTCP). Originally administered entirely by the National Zoological Park (NZP), Department of Zoological Research, the GLTCP focused on the conservation of the golden lion tamarin in its natural habitat and was responsible for the release of captive-born golden lion tamarins into the Reserva Biológica de Poço das Antas (Brazil). In 1992, overall administration of the program was transferred to the Brazilian non-governmental organization, Associação Mico-Leão-Dourado. The Department of Zoological Research continued to administer NZP's involvement in reintroduction, tracking, and conservation education. Topics documented in this accession include fund raising, budget, conservation training, studbook administration, policies, publicity, research publication, evaluation of calling patterns, observation of released golden lion tamarins, reintroduction logistics, and involvement with international conservation organizations and committees.

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, reports, meeting materials, clippings, newsletters, observations, data evaluations, policies, procedures, permits, manuscripts, filming requests, presentations, newsletters, brochures, pamphlets, posters, images, maps, audio recordings, notes, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format. Some materials were created while the unit was known as the Office of Animal Management (through 1979), the Office of Animal Programs (1979-1984), or the Department of Zoological Research and Education (1984-1985).

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of materials documenting the research and professional activities of conservation biologist Devra G. Kleiman, 1942-2010. Kleiman began her professional career in 1972 as the first female scientist at the National Zoological Park (NZP) where she was hired to manage the zoo's captive breeding program. In 1982, Kleiman became Acting Assistant Director for Animal Programs in the Office of Animal Programs, assuming the position permanently the following year. During a series of reorganizations, Kleiman became the Assistant Director of Zoological Research and Education in 1984; the Assistant Director of Research in 1985; and the Assistant Director of Zoological Research heading the Department of Zoological Research in 1996. In 1997, Kleiman assumed the position of Senior Scientist. After her retirement in 2001, Kleiman served as Senior Scientist Emeritus at NZP, taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland at College Park, and owned a consulting company, Zoo-Logic, LLC. During her career, Kleiman helped establish the Associacao Mico-Leao-Dourado, a Brazilian non-governmental association for the conservation of golden lion tamarins; served on many international committees, working groups, and task forces for species conservation; and was affiliated with numerous non-profit conservation organizations. Much of Kleiman's research and activities focused on the reintroduction of golden lion tamarins to the wild and the captive breeding of giant pandas. Kleiman wrote approximately 150 manuscripts and two books, Wild Mammals in Captivity: Principles and Techniques (1996) and Lion Tamarins: Biology and Conservation (2002).

Much of Kleiman's research and activities focused on the reintroduction of golden lion tamarins to the wild and the captive breeding of giant pandas. Other research projects included Delmarva fox squirrels, beach (oldfield) mice, island foxes, and, more generally, primates, canids, and other mammals. She also trained other scientists in behavioral observations, vocalization interpretations, and animal reintroduction preparations. Kleiman wrote approximately 150 manuscripts and two books, Wild Mammals in Captivity: Principles and Techniques (1996) and Lion Tamarins: Biology and Conservation (2002). Kleiman's research trips to China and Brazil are also well-documented in this accession.

Materials include correspondence, presentations, reports, planning documents, meeting materials, manuscripts, images, fieldbooks, clippings, notes, postcards, brochures, pamphlets, contracts, surveys, newsletters, videos, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records documenting the research activities and professional files of National Zoological Park (NZP) research scientist and population manager, Dr. Jonathon D. Ballou. Dr. Ballou's research for the NZP Center for Conservation and Evolutionary Genetics, and its predecessors, the Office of Zoological Research (circa 1973-1982), the Department of Zoological Research and Education (1984-1985), the Department of Zoological Research (1986-2000), and the Department of Conservation Biology (2001-2003), primarily consisted of captive breeding techniques; population management and viability analysis; conservation genetics; and the formulation of reintroduction plans for endangered species. Additional materials concern the development of database software for the management of animal pedigree data; the administration of research activities; and involvement in professional activities.

Topics documented within this accession include the conservation of the golden lion tamarin, the black-footed ferret, the Florida panther, and the giant panda. Materials include research data and analysis; lecture notes; clippings; brochures; studbooks; correspondence and memoranda; photographic slides and other images; meeting notes and agendas; budget files; and other related materials. Some materials are in electronic format. Some materials predate Ballou's tenure.

Descriptive Entry:
These records document the history of CBCES and the development of its programs. Included are materials concerning the establishment of the Center; land acquisition, including files on foundations that contributed funds for the purchase of property; facilities development; the cooperative agreement between the Smithsonian, the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland for research at CBCES; the development and activities of the Chesapeake Research Consortium; research conducted by CBCES staff and visiting scientists; proposals for research at CBCES; CBCES projects including the Rhode River Watershed Program, the Rhode River Environmental Education Project, and the Poplar Island Erosion Control Study; relations with Smithsonian bureaus, government agencies, community groups, and research organizations; and environmental issues, especially those affecting the Chesapeake Bay. The records were created primarily by Francis S. L. Williamson during his tenure as Director of CBCES, 1968-1975. Also included are smaller amounts of records created by his predecessor, Kyle R. Barbehenn, 1965-1968, and by J. Kevin Sullivan as Assistant Director, 1971-1975, Acting Director, 1975-1976, and Director, 1976. Correspondence of Smithsonian administrators Philip C. Ritterbush, Helmut K. Buechner, and Irvin Eugene Wallen is also found in the records.

The records include incoming and outgoing correspondence, memoranda, proposals, reports, photographs, and publications.
Historical Note:
On July 1, 1965 the Chesapeake Bay Center for Field Biology (CBCFB) was created to conduct research and promote education in ecosystem biology. CBCFB was established at Java Farm, a 368 acre tract of land located seven miles south of Annapolis, Maryland on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Java Farm was bequeathed to the Smithsonian Institution by Robert Lee Forest in 1962. Adjoining property was purchased with funds contributed by private foundations, and the centers site eventually grew to 2,400 acres, including 14 miles of shoreline on the Rhode River.

From 1965 until 1969, CBCFB was an administrative unit of the Smithsonian Office of Ecology. In 1969, its name was changed to the Chesapeake Bay Center for Environmental Studies (CBCES), and it was placed under the administration of the newly created Office of Environmental Sciences. CBCES became an independent Smithsonian bureau in 1973, reporting to the Assistant Secretary for Science. Directors of CBCES (before 1969 CBCFB) have included Kyle R. Barbehenn, 1965-1968; Francis S. L. Williamson, 1968-1975; and J. Kevin Sullivan, Acting Director, 1975-1976 and Director, 1976- .

In February 1966, the Smithsonian joined in an agreement with the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland to collaborate in biological research and education at CBCFB. In 1971 the three institutions joined with the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences to form the Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) to "foster and facilitate research germane to the region of the Chesapeake Bay." CBCES became a major component of the CRC program.
