Abstract: This series includes three field diaries by Dr. Charles M. Breder, documenting his expeditions to Bimini, an island chain in the Bahamas. During these research trips the Lerner Marine Laboratory was constructed and established as a field station of the American Museum of Natural History. In addition to observing native fish species in their natural habitats, Breder also ran systematic experiments in the laboratory’s aquaria to observe fish behavior. This included recording responses to external stimuli such as a flashlight, and inferring fish dominance in how they occupied shelters placed in the aquaria. He focuses on several fish species including silversides, round herring, puffer fish, and needle fish. Additionally, the diaries include descriptions of Breder’s personal activities.
