A writer with a crisp, accessible style, L.M. Huey published many reports and
articles on birds and mammal species in the scientific and non-scientific press.
He published scientific notes and papers mainly in the museum journal Transactions,
the ornithological journal Condor, and the Journal of Mammalogy.
His articles for the popular press included anecdotes from his collecting trips,
species observations, and responses to public queries.
Following is a sample list of papers, culled from a two-volume "Collected
Papers of L.M. Huey 1913-1964," held at the SDNHM Library. The bibliography
is organized by topic (Guadalupe Island) and by genre (scientific or popular press).
