This chapter discusses the expedition to Baja California, which was Alexander's first visit to the state. It shows that Baja California represented the northernmost extent of the range of many Latin American species. The discussion describes the climate in the region, and introduces Annetta Carter, who was invited by Alexander and Kellogg to join them on the collecting expedition to Baja. It also reveals that several staff of the Museum of Vertebrae Zoology who had experience conducting fieldwork on the peninsula gave Alexander a great deal of advice before she and her companions departed for the region. This included a five-page list that enumerated essential general equipment.

Keywords:   Baja California, Latin American species, Annetta Carter, collecting expedition
