Abstract

For some twenty years the author has been organizing contests among his students in Botany, Zoology, Bird Study, Tree Study and Entomology as a means of encouraging a greater interest in field work with better observation and more intelligent understanding. Some of the schemes employed may at first glance seem childish. That the plan gets results is attested by the working knowledge of plants and animals acquired by these students and what they have been able to do with this knowledge as teachers, research workers and in other fields since leaving college.
