The Herpetology Field Notebooks Collection consists of approximately 286 field notebooks. These notebooks contain information related to the collection of Herpetology specimens held at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology (UMMZ). While some of the notebooks are merely logbooks of collections with species identifications for each field number with places and dates, others have much more detailed information including field conditions, habitat notes, specimen descriptions including colors and measurements, as well as detailed maps.
