Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
The Pacific Ocean Biological Survey Program (POBSP) consisted of biological surveys of an area of the Pacific Ocean that was dotted with clusters of islands and atolls. The major goals of the program were to learn what plants and animals occurred on the islands, the seasonal variations in their numbers and reproductive activities, and the distribution and population of the pelagic birds in that area. These records consist of several hundred color slides taken mostly by Jeffrey P. Tordoff, who worked on the project June 1965-July 1966 and December 1967-February 1968. Image subjects include animals (particularly birds), plants, landscapes, and survey staff members. Most images are identified.
