Visits to South America on behalf of the International Biological Programme, Jul 1967
These visits were made by Nicholson and other members of the CT [Conservation of Terrestrial Communities] Sectional Committee of the IBP, following a CT Sectional Committee meeting in Rio de Janeiro. Nicholson attended meetings in the principal cities of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Columbia; discussions were wide-ranging and included the proposed IUCN special programme for South America. Excursions to some National Parks were included.
Nicholson's South American trips were preceded by stays in Washington DC, Antigua and Trinidad and Tobago, mid Jun-early Jul.
