Fig. 4.2. Numbers of Ernst Mayr's publications in his main fields of research between 1923 and 2004. Figures refer to his books as listed on page 478. Not included are publications in various miscellaneous fields, his annual reports as Director of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University (1961-1970) and over 120 book reviews. The drop in the number of ornithological publications during 1928-1929 and 1934-1936 was caused by Mayr's expedition to New Guinea and the incorporation of the Rothschild collection into that of the AMNH, respectively
