Originally Carnegie Institution of Washington Publication 457, 1936 AMCS Reprint
Subtitled "A Zoologic and Hydrographic Survey," this important book reports the results of an expedition to the Yucatan Peninsula in 1932. Thirty cenotes (three of them artificial) were visited. Chapters by the authors and collaborators contain 131 text figures and 19 plates of photographs. The content is predominately biological; especially notable is Hubbs's long chapter on the fishes of the peninsula.
