Title: The Galapagos Collection PDF
Url: https://uwdc.library.wisc.edu/collections/Zoology/Galapagos/
Publisher: University of Wisconsin Digital Collections Center
Description: Access to the Galapagos Islands has become very limited in recent decades, and currently only three museums have permission from the Ecuadorian government to collect, preserve, transport, and maintain scientific anatomical specimens from the Galapagos Islands. One of these museums is the University of Wisconsin's Zoological Museum (UWZM) and they have made ten expeditions to this remarkable group of islands since 1969. Over the past few decades, these expeditions have produced many papers and reports, and some of these documents may be found right here at this collection which was created by the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections group. Visitors can read works like "Ecology of Giant Tortoises in the Galapagos Islands" by Linda Jean Cayot and classic texts such as A.L. Kroeber's "Floral relations among the Galapagos Islands" from 1916. All told, there are 37 digitized documents here, and visitors can browse through them or perform text searches as well.
