Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of the research records of zoologist James Francis Lynch (1942-1998). In 1974, Lynch became the first staff scientist at the Chesapeake Bay Center for Environmental Studies (CBCES) which was renamed the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) in 1985. Lynch administered or participated in several projects conducted on the Center's property and the surrounding Chesapeake region as well as internationally. This accession documents research on ants and other insects performed locally and in the Bahamas as well as salamander research in Mexico. This accession also documents the environmental studies programs in general at CBCES and a study of the farms on CBCES land. Materials include data sheets, data analysis documents, field notes, graphs, reports, correspondence, program documentation, and related materials. Some materials pre-date Lynch's tenure.
