From 1970 to 1990 we were
freelance associates of the
National Museum of Natural Sciences
(NMNS, now Canadian Museum of Nature, CMN).
Aleta collected amphibians, reptiles,
and invertebrates in Kenya in 1972,
and Fred collected Birds
for the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)
throughout Canada south
of the high Arctic in1970-1975.
Our three Canada-wide trips
that were undertaken for the composition
of general natural history books
(1976-1977, 1985-1986, 1987-1989),
were all documented by specimens
deposited in the NMNS.
and the field notes that go with them,
are the basis for the evaluations
of ecological change
that we plan to make
in our 30Years Later travels.
