About This Journal
The Brigham Young University Science Bulletin, Biological Series published long-format original natural history research in 20 volumes from the years 1955 to 1977. The flora and fauna of Utah, Nevada (particularly the Nevada Test Site), and Idaho, as well as the Colorado River Basin and Plateau, receive extensive coverage throughout the series. Volumes 17 through 20 treat mites, ticks, fleas, lice, and bat flies (among other taxa) of Venezuela. Authors were primarily from the faculty of Brigham Young University working under large research contracts from NIH, NSF, AEC, and USFS.
D Elden Beck and C. Lynn Hayward were the driving force in the creation of the Science Bulletin. Authors edited their own papers until 1966, when Dorald M. Allred was appointed as editor of the series.
