Summary, etc.:
The collections that furnished material for this bulletin were made in 1873-74 and 1874-75. The first collection well represents the fish-fauna of the harbor of Honlulu and the avi-fauna of the Fauna group. While among the latter islands, the means for preservation of specimens were too limited to permit of a very extensive collection of fish. A complete botanical collection was made at Palmyra and Christmas Islands.
In regard to the Lower Californian collection, it by no means represents either the fauna or flora of any place or section. The specimens were collected all along the coasts, with each collecting stay being to short to allow much more than a cursory examination.
