Excerpt from Canada Department of Agriculture, Central Experimental Farm: Report of the Entomologist and Botanist (James Fletcher, LL. D., F. R. S. C., F. L. S.), 1903

Collections. - The collections of insects and plants in the Division have been very much augmented during the past year, many interesting additions having been made from material collected in the field, as well as through the kindness of correspondents who have sent in collections to be named by the officers of the Division. The success of the recent Nature Study movement in education has had a marked effect in in creasing the interest in the subjects dealt with in the Division of Entomology and Botany, as has been evidenced by the large number of natural history objects which have been sent in with inquiries for information concerning them. These were for the most part insects and plants and came from teachers, students and farm children living in every province of the Dominion. I was much pleased to have the opportunity of distributing useful knowledge concerning these important subjects in this direct way to those for whom it was of so much practical value; and, moreover, from this source many valuable additions have been made to all of our collections. For several years material of all kinds has been accumulating from my own collections in the West, from the extensive breeding investigations into the life-histories of insects which have been carried on here, and from specimens sent in by correspondents for examination. Dur ing the past season many insects have been mounted and arranged in the cases, as well as plants in the herbarium, so that we have in the Division fairly good working col lections which are now available for reference when required.
