Research [series]

The Research series (8.25 linear feet), 1939-1997, is the largest component of the collection and documents the research activities of the Reserve. The series is organized into subseries based on research areas, which include the Bee Study, Flowers, General, Insects, Plants, Projects, and Weather Records. The Bee Study includes data from 1948 to 1995 with particular emphasis on the years 1972 and 1973. The records, gathered primarily on Evans Old Field, include information on various species of bees and aspects such as phenology, plant visitation, and flight periods. This content is parallel to that of the Flowers series, which covers a similar time period and has information on flower phenology, bee visitation, flowering periods, and other information for a variety of plant species. The General series includes data on various animal and plant life on the Reserve that is not extensive enough to form its own series but still gives valuable information. The plant data contains information from a fifty year study conducted by Francis C. Evans on successional change on Evans Old Field. This data has also been captured in a database and these digital files have been included online. The Projects series is more administrative in nature and includes information on researchers, their projects, and research proposals involving the Reserve. The final subseries, Weather Records, includes daily and monthly weather records between 1951 and 1978, as well as information on the Reserve's Meteorology program.
