  • Request

Nicholson undertook this trip in his capacity of Convener of Section CT (Conservation of Terrestrial Communities) of the International Biological Programme. The opportunity arose from his participation in the meetings of the British Commonwealth Scientific Committee (BCSC) in New Zealand, Nov to Dec. Nicholson gave lectures with reference to IBP in Wellington (New Zealand), Canberra and Bangkok, and visited numerous official and unofficial organisations, principally research stations, universities, Academies of Science, Research Councils and bodies involved in conserving national parks, nature reserves etc.

The itineraries indicate that Nicholson also spent the nights of 30 Dec 1964-1 Jan 1965 in Tel-Aviv (after leaving Iran) but no details about his engagements there were found.

Correspondence regarding arrangements for the various stages of the tour (including the BCSC Meeting), with itineraries, lists of contacts etc.
