The Percy Sladen Trust Expedition to the Indian Ocean. Further Explorations 1

Abstract

TO complete the work of the above expedition I left in June last for the Seychelles, accompanied by Mr. H. Scott and Mr. J. C. F. Fryer as naturalists. We arrived there on July 10, but were unfortunately detained on Long Island, the quarantine station, for ten days. The time, however, was by no means wasted, as the island was fairly representative of low-country coco nut cultivation, and contained a fairly rich insect fauna, mainly of introduced species. We had boats also, and were thus enabled to examine the reefs in its vicinity, collecting particularly the sedentary organisms.
