Marshall Islands expedition

 

Case study number: 0005
Case study provider: Thomas Garnett, Smithsonian Institution Libraries. garnettt@si.edu
Case study title: Marshall Islands expedition
Actor(s): Elizabeth A. Murphy
Location(s): Stanhope, NJ USA
Objective: Finding correct Latin names for a book on Russian expeditions to the Marshall Islands (http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/6523808)
Actions: Gentle people at the Biodiversity Heritage Library, many thanks for making the above-referenced book available as a downloadable PDF file. I am working on a translation from German that references early Russian expeditions to the Marshall Islands. I really appreciate being able to consult this publication (which I only found out about today via University Herbarium, University of California, Berkeley: Center for Phycological Documentation: Index Nominum Algarum). This book looks like it will be a big help in verifying the correct spelling of old Latin designations and authors names.
