This investigation was made for the purpose of determining what has been accomplished in the past in the study of ethnobiology of the southwest Indians. Much of this has been produced as incidental to the archaeology of the region, and some as definite biological problems. Also isolated pieces of work have been done with the different Indian peoples and with varying phases of their ethnobiology. It is therefore proposed to organize and correlate this great mass of ethnobiological literature into a plan which (1 ) includes the entire region and (2) considers the various phases of the culture through which the people have passed and (3) compares the ethnobiology of the present day inhabitants who represent a diversity of cultures.
