Frank Morton Jones & Carnivorous Plant Research in the Early 20th Century
Frank Morton Jones was a 20th century naturalist, investigating primarily entomology, particularly Lepidoptera and the insects associated with the pitcher plant family Sarraceniaceae. Upon his death in 1962, he left various universities his collections and journal libraries, including Yale University with 5 boxes of archival material. Using this material, Stephanie Day (Howard University), during her internship in the 2006 Harvard Forest Summer Research Program in Forest Ecology, compiled this material and designed a website about the past knowledge of pitcher plants and the work of Frank Morton Jones. The Harvard Forest Summer Research Program in Forest Ecology is a program supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation through grant 0452254. Additional support for this project provided by NSF grant 0541680.I .
