This bio-bibliography lists works about, and some works by, New England naturalists. Some naturalists primarily associated with other areas are included who have done significant work in New England. Coverage is largely restricted to naturalists active before 1945 or so. This is very much a work in progress. Many entries remain to be checked, so it must be used with caution. Suggestions for addition and corrections are gratefully received. Many of the cryptic abbreviations are explained in the Bibliography. I am happy to answer questions via email.

Articles in the Auk are available online at SORA- The Searchable Ornithological Research Archive.

The most common abbreviations are:

  • AOU: Biographies of members of the American Ornithologists' Union, by T. S. Palmer and others. Reprinted from "The Auk," 1884-1954. [Edited by Paul H. Oehser] Washington, 1954. 630 p.
  • Meisel: Meisel, Max. 1924-1929. A bibliography of American natural history; the pioneer century, 1769-1865.

I am in the process of replacing cryptic abbreviations with full citations.
