The personnel involved in the project:
Ad hoc collecting beginning in 1955 by Ross and Joyce Bell and associates, as well as reliable records from literature gathered by the authors. Most locations of specimens were georeferenced by the authors on paper maps for each species using township borders as a reference when placing a location. Points from each of these species maps were digitized in a GIS.
|Study Extent||Vermont and New Hampshire, USA|
