the Brazilian hinterland.
The official and proper title of the expedition is that given it by
the Brazilian Government: Expedicao Scientifica Roosevelt-
Rondon. When I started from the United States, it was to
make an expedition, primarily concerned with mammalogy and
ornithology, for the American Museum of Natural History of
New York. This was undertaken under the auspices of Messrs.
Osborn and Chapman, acting on behalf of the Museum. In
the body of this work I describe how the scope of the expedition
was enlarged, and how it was given a geographic as well as
a zoological character, in consequence of the kind proposal of
the Brazilian Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, General
Lauro Muller. In its altered and enlarged form the expedition
was rendered possible only by the generous assistance of
the Brazilian Government. Throughout the body of the work
will be found reference after reference to my colleagues and
companions of the expedition, whose services to science I have
endeavored to set forth, and for whom I shall always feel the
most cordial friendship and regard.
