A folder of SELGEM numeric lists of bird specimens from the PMS (Palearctic Migratory Bird Survey). From the finding aid (SIA RU000435): "The Palearctic Migratory Bird Survey (PMS), a survey of migratory birds, their ectoparasites and the viruses they carry, was conducted in the eastern Mediterranean from 1966 to 1971. The primary PMS operation site was in northern Egypt. Surveys were also conducted in Cyprus and Israel. The PMS involved scientists of the Smithsonian Institution, the United States Naval Medical Research Unit, and Yale University, and was funded by the Army Research Office, the Smithsonian Foreign Currency Program, and the Smithsonian Research Foundation. George E. Watson, Chairman, Department of Vertebrate Zoology, and Curator, Division of Birds, National Museum of Natural History, was Principal Investigator". Surveys were also conducted in Uganda. The first leaf gives statistics on all records processed, the total number of lines processed, excluded and printed. The following lists show the bird species and places in which the survey was conducted, with an ID number for each specimen. The system used is SELGEM, an information management system that was devised by the Smithsonian Institution.
