Living World 1997-1998

In this issue, we present a series of articles by Richard ffrench, one giving a brief history of ornithology in Trinidad and the others updating the status of certain bird species in Trinidad and Tobago. Ian Lambie and Vishnu Debie provided the data on bird counts for the years 1976 to 1981. Paul Comeau and C.C. Clubbe give an interesting account of savanna expansion following fires in the Aripo Savannas. An account on the food and feeding behaviour of the bat Carollia perspicillata is given by Victor Quesnel. Migratory patterns of butterflies are difficult to study, so we welcome the observations made by Dave Chadee on Phoebis statira. Matthew Cock continues with his series on the Hesperiidae butterflies. He describes a new species for Trinidad, Clito trinidadensis. He expects to complete the series of studies in our next issue and then begin a series of updates on these butterflies.
