|About DSpace Software|
This site is a portal to the records of the Bass Biological Laboratory of Englewood, Florida, during the 1930s and early 1940s. The Bass Laboratory was Florida's first independent, non-profit, full-time, coeducational marine and biological research laboratory. The Lab maintained a profit-making subsidiary, Zoological Research Supply.
Records of the Bass Laboratory have been rescued and are archived at Mote Marine Laboratory. In 2010 priority is being given to preservation, inventory, and digitization of the records.
This Community will provide electronic access to documents, photographs, personal communications, field logs, and other records from the Laboratory.
