An excerpt from Ben Stone’s editorial preface to volume 1 of Micronesica, September 1964.
Micronesica is obviously a regional journal, geographically focused, and next, categorically limited to the sciences of anthropology, botany, and zoology. This design implies a certain specialization, yet it leaves large general areas open as well. There are clearly enough regional specialists in the three fields, judging from the favorable response to our preliminary survey, so that Micronesica will fulfill a need. This is, we believe, adequate justification to proceed.
