This guide describes the Paul Elias field note volumes bound at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, Berkeley.
In 1974, as an undergraduate working at the University of California’s Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, Paul Elias traveled to Finca Chiblac in the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes of Guatemala. While there, he discovered two new genera of salamander, later named Nyctanolis pernix and Bradytriton silus. Elias would continue on to receive a Master of Arts degree in zoology from the University of California at Berkeley in 1979 with his thesis, "The Salamanders of Northwestern Guatemala." He then earned a second Master of Arts degree in biology from Harvard University in 1982.
