Notes:

The Pacific Ocean Biological Survey Program (POBSP) was initiated in 1962 when the Smithsonian Institution entered into a grant agreement with the Department of Defense. From January 1963 through June 1969 Smithsonian Institution employees undertook biological surveys in an area of the Pacific Ocean spanning the equator and extending from latitude 30 degrees north to 10 degrees south and from longitude 150 degrees east to 180 degrees west, an area 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 of that area. Emphasis was placed on the banding of birds in an effort to determine migration, distribution, and abundance of pelagic sea birds. During the six and a half years of field work 1,800,000 birds were banded; approximately 150,000 observations of pelagic birds at sea were made; and biological surveys of varying intensity were made on several islands.The present folder contains a copy of an annotated report of the POBSP, prepared by William O. Wirtz, on Lisianski Island, with a botany section by C. Robert Long. The report's title is "Biological survey of Lisianski Island", and the copy is dated 1966. The report itself, undated, has its latest bibliographical reference dated from 1961. It includes plates of photos dating from the early 1900s, some figuring Alexander Wetmore. The annotations and marginalia have dates up to 1968. The report concerns the climate, birds and vegetation on the island.
