Annotation Of Expeditions And Individuals Recording Natural History Notes


Barton W. Evermann, 1890-1891:

Evermann was the first to conduct limnological studies of Montana's streams and lakes. He provides an excellent summary of physical and natural history features of streams and lakes in western Montana. His surveys covered the Clark Fork and Snake Rivers west of the Divide and the Jefferson, Madison, Gallatin, upper Missouri, and upper Yellowstone Rivers east of the Divide. His 1891 paper has photos and maps of the areas covered by the survey.
