The University of Iowa Expedition to the South Seas participated in by six persons from that institution between May 14 and September 4, 1922, was undertaken largely for the purpose of making biological and geological collections and field observations. More than 17,000 miles were traversed of which something over 12,000 were by water. Of the total elapsed time-approximately 112 days-forty-five were spent in travel, after leaving the American continent, for the purpose of arriving at and returning from our objectives, Viti Levu of the Fiji Islands, where four weeks were spent, and the Dominion of New Zealand, where about five weeks were occupied in work and travel.
