Margaret Welch, a museum curator, used chronological rather than geographical limits in her Book of Nature: Natural History in the United States, — , with many historical illustrations.
Robert Elman and Stephen Bown wrote somewhat similar works, also illustrated. Lester Stephens focused more narrowly thematically and broadly chronologically in Science, Race, and Religion in the American South: John Bachman and the Charleston Circle of Naturalists, — , with portraits and contemporary zoology illustrations. In the United States, paying jobs in ecology were more plentiful than in Britain, because American higher education and government were still growing, and new ecologists could find jobs both in academia and government. The University of Chicago developed such schools in botany and zoology departments, beginning around Cassidy, Henry Chandler Cowles: Pioneer Ecologist and more briefly in Ronald Tobey, Saving the Prairies — , though Tobey's book emphasized a contemporary rival plant ecology school at the University of Nebraska that educated Frederic E.
The Chicago animal ecology school's history is discussed by Gregg Mitman Ronald Engel's Sacred Sands provides information on both of Chicago's ecology schools. Not all ecologists found specific ecological positions; some wore two hats. Some ecologists were also ornithologists. The Nuttall Ornithological Club was organized in Cambridge, Massachusetts in , and a decade later some of its members decided to found the American Ornithologists' Union Palmer :7 , following the example of the British Ornithologists' Union.
Much later, two collections of studies on the history of ecology appeared as Memoirs 12 and 13 of the Nuttall Ornithological Club Davis and Jackson , In the same time period, Mark Barrow published a synthesis of American ornithological history The University of Washington was also in Seattle, since , though its first natural historian, Orson B.
Johnson, only arrived in Benson Johnson and the Young Naturalists were mutually supportive. Brooks Randolph b. Collecting shells was how conchologists got started, and Randolph traded shells with other naturalists in the Northwest and beyond. The Nautilus was the journal of American conchologists, which helped Randolph meet, via mail, other conchologists, whose leadership was located in eastern USA.
In , the universities of New Mexico and Montana established land research stations. Frederic E. Clements began preparing to open a private station on the side of Pike's Peak, Colorado, which lasted for years of fruitful research by him and others Hagen —46, Vetter , , Egerton The Carnegie Institution earlier supported two other ecological stations, on a tropical island, and in a desert.
Alfred Mayer recommended the tropical station, on Loggerhead Key, Florida, and he became its head in Stephens and Calder —44, Egerton c — That station continued until For the desert station, Carnegie accepted advice from Frederick Coville and Daniel MacDougal in , who recommended opening one near Tucson, Arizona Burgess , 70, Egerton — MacDougal became its first head Kingsland , After 75 years of research at RMBL, its administrators realized that its researchers had provided a rich heritage of ecological understanding, and that this was also true of other such institutions.
Consequently, RMBL organized an international symposium of ecologists from comparable institutions, and edited their reports into The Ecology of Place Billick and Price Some of these stations around the world were founded before and continue functioning at high levels. On 27 March , entomologist Robert Henry Wolcott — , at the University of Nebraska Burgess , wrote to animal ecologist Victor Shelford — , then at the University of Chicago, suggesting formation of a Midwestern society of plant and animal ecologists Shelford , Burgess :2, Croker —, Egerton Shelford discussed it with the university plant ecologist Henry Cowles — , who was enthusiastic, but suggested a national society, that could be organized at the next AAAS meeting Cassidy — Word was passed around, and a preliminary organizational meeting was held on 30 December , with at least 23 potential members present.
All known American ecologists were notified about the formal organizational meeting, which occurred on 28 December , with about 50 ecologists present and supported by another 50 letters from ecologists not present McIntosh —, Burgess :7, —67, Croker —66, , — There were charter members; however, ESA membership grew slowly until about World War I, —18, was very disruptive of ecological progress in Europe, but less so in the United States, which only joined the war in , and fought none of it on American soil but did experience naval conflict in the Atlantic.
ESA accepted the offer and renamed it Ecology ; the first issue appeared in January Burgess — Ecological Monographs began in January ESA membership to Burgess Like the Kiel school [Germany], the Port Erin station [England], and ICES, the research program integrated physical and chemical observations to provide a picture of an ecological whole. The primary focus was biological, and focus was on plankton, copepods, and other organisms.
During and after the war, Ritter began to change his view of what the Scripps Institution should do. In limnology, there was important activity at U. Two informal U. Edward Birge — , who began teaching at the Wisconsin university in , before he had completed his Ph. In , he hired Chancey Juday — as an assistant, and they were very productive researchers and authors Juday and Hasler , Burgess —60, Egerton b , b — Birge became president of the university, which did not end his research, but training graduate students was left to Juday.
One of Juday's students was Arthur Hasler — , who would succeed him Egerton a. Englishman Evelyn Hutchinson — initiated the Yale school, gradually, after he joined Yale's faculty in Burgess —57, Slack — He trained graduate students, who were attracted by his brilliant teaching and publications and by Yale's reputation as one of U. The Limnological Society of American was organized in , with Juday being one of the organizers Lauff — The source of this organization was a Committee on Aquaculture organized in , meeting in Washington. In January , Professor Paul Welch — , University of Michigan, distributed a circular announcing the founding of the Limnological Society of American in January , when there were charter members.
It still met with AAAS. The title of a history of the Georgia Institute of Ecology Barrett and Barrett indicates it was founded in , but was only the year in which Eugene P. Odum — joined the University of Georgia faculty Craige Gene Likens, Founding Director and Distinguished Senior Scientist Emeritus, is writing a history of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, which came into existence after personal communication , 4 December It was founded at Woods Hole because the Federal Fisheries Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory were there, and it was not primarily oriented toward marine biology.
However, its first director, —, was Harvard marine biologist Henry Bigelow — , and oceanography does include marine biology Bigelow , Shor , Lewandowski WHOI has since sponsored its own history Cullen Part 51 also omitted mention of the Hancock Institute for Marine Studies for the same reason: businessman—philanthropist G. Allan Hancock — founded it in the s, and served as its director, — Aleem Hancock had funded a scientific expedition to the Galapagos Islands in by the California Academy of Sciences, and he used his ship Velero III for 10 scientific expeditions, —, each lasting two or three months.
Some Canadian contributions have been discussed in previous parts of this history Egerton d —, b , c — In Canada, limnology developed more slowly than in USA. In the s, commercial fisheries were declining in the Great Lakes, and the University of Toronto, assisted by Ontario provincial government funds, opened a Georgian Bay Biological Station at Go Home Bay, where research was conducted until it closed in Fry and Legendre — Why did it close?
The site seemed inconvenient, but no one chose an alternative site. Since the Ontario government maintained a few research stations, the university perhaps felt no immediate pressure to continue. It awaited a faculty member who would push for another. There are two histories of government fisheries research Johnstone , Hubbard As part of the British Empire, Canada went to war against Germany in , when Britain declared war, disrupting ecology studies and activities until Donald Rawson — , from Ontario, earned three degrees from the University of Toronto — In , he joined the faculty of the University of Saskatchewan, in Saskatoon, where he remained Hammer He served as president of the Limnological Society of America, — Danish botanist Alf Porsild — followed in his father's footsteps by studying the boreal flora of Greenland Dathan The chief botanist at the National Herbarium of Canada, Oscar Malte, recruited him and his brother, Robert, to come to Canada to manage introduction of reindeer herds into Canada's tundra to boost tundra economy.
Although Porsild had the requisite botanical knowledge, the project failed for other reasons, but the Porsild brothers remained in Canada, and Alf Porsild eventually replaced Malte as chief botanist at the National Herbarium.
His sources go back to , but not to earlier works by Verdoorn, von Hagen, and Chardon. Frans Verdoorn edited and compiled Plants and Plant Science in Latin America , which is an extensive compendium of whatever historical material he could find on the subject.
Carlos Chardon, of the Dominican Republic, published Los Naturalistas en la America Latina , extending from s to s, emphasizing Caribbean islands. It was a very expensive set, and consequently rare, and printed on now brittle acid paper.

Fortunately, the Smithsonian Institution is putting the 57 biological volumes on the Internet. One can supplement this online resource with the online Biodiversity Heritage Library, also hosted by the Smithsonian.
He left a copy of his notes in Mexico and took a copy back to Spain, where it is in the Escorial. Standley's Trees and Shrubs of Mexico 5 parts, — On other flora studies, see Maguire — Chardon — surveyed natural history studies conducted there from into s. Floras and plant ecology studies published between and are listed by Herminio Lugo , as well as a study on its economic entomology Puerto Ricans eventually gained access to education in the United States, if desired, and also had contact with Americans who taught and researched in Puerto Rico.
Jamaica is 90 miles km south of Cuba and has square miles 10, km 2. An English expedition seized and settled Jamaica in In , Hans Sloane — became physician to its governor and remained there until , when that governor died Chardon —56, Allen :passim, de Beer , Desmond —, MacGregor Sloane eventually published his valuable discoveries: Catalogus plantarum quae in Jamaica sponte proveniunt and Voyage to Madeira, Barbadoes, and Jamaica, with the Natural History of Jamaica two volumes — Later, Patrick Browne ?
He published a new map of Jamaica , and in his Civil and Natural History of Jamaica , which contained the map and 49 engravings. The earliest Spanish settlement was on the island of Hispaniola, and the earliest report on its natural history was by Gonzalo de Oviedo — , a summary version of which appeared in Toledo , with part of a longer version published in Seville , and a complete edition appeared in — von Hagen a —30, Chardon —, Allen , Cook France, in , established a slave colony on its western third of Hispaniola, named Saint Domingue.

Pittier was much influenced by the writings of geographers Alexander von Humboldt — and Carl Ritter — , and biologists Darwin, Wallace, and Haeckel Yacher — In , he obtained a position teaching science at a school for women in Switzerland, where he remained until In , the Swiss economy was in crisis and Pittier's colleagues at the women's school disapproved of his radical science evolution , and the Americas seemed to hold more promise.
He accepted an invitation to go teach in Costa Rica. By then he had published 24 articles and monographs, he belonged to several scientific organizations, and he spoke French, German, English, Italian, and Greek. American botanist Paul C. In , the government established its School of Agriculture, and in its University of Costa Rica. In , the Organization of American States founded at Turrialba the Institute of Agricultural Sciences for teaching and research in tropical agriculture and forestry. It offered a graduate program leading to a master's degree.
It emphasized ecology for solving agricultural problems. Chapman A land of 28, square miles, its canal was completed in , a year before founding of ESA Egerton Creation of the canal required damming the Chagras River, creating the Gatun Lake The lake made islands out of former hilltops; a large example is Barro Colorado Island In , American entomologist Dr.

Barbour and others provided enough funds to establish a biological station, with Zetek's director. He laid out 25 miles of trails and hired natives to cut vegetation for them. An ecologist who conducted research at this station was University of Chicago professor Warder Clyde Allee — , who traveled there with his wife, Marjorie, who wrote children's books Dugatkin They co—authored a children's book, Jungle Island , based upon their experiences there Dugatkin Chapman was a popular author and an outstanding museum leader von Hagen —, Vuilleumier Funding was postponed because of war.
Strandley — summarized history of Panama floral studies. Juan and Ulloa returned to Spain in on separate ships. Ulloa's ship was captured by the British, and he was taken to London, where the Royal Society of London made him a member and returned him to Spain. Spanish Scientific Expedition to America, —, itinerary.
Miller In —, Spain sponsored its own scientific expedition to South America Miller —21, Goodman — It occurred because Spanish naturalists and government independently wanted in to undertake such an expedition, and by joining forces, they were able to plan and fund it. The scientists also included an anthropologist, a taxidermist, and an artist—photographer.
The expedition left Cadiz in August and returned to Spain in January Paz complained continually, and so alienated the officers that the Triunfo 's captain confined the scientifics below deck. On 24 July Paz resigned and returned to Spain.

Amor did brilliant work, but died after a year. Isern was a diligent worker, who died from a tropical liver infection shortly after returning to Spain. The expedition's return coincided with a financial crisis in Spain, which dampened its homecoming Miller — Robert Miller concluded that this rather successful expedition was forgotten because of the crisis and the deaths of two important naturalists and the resignation of is leader.
