Excerpt from The Victorian Naturalist, Vol. 14: The Journal and Magazine of the Field Naturalists' Club of Victoria; May, 1897, to April, 1898
On visiting the seashore it may be that the tide is in, so that we can only stroll along the edge of the water, and pick up an occasi... onal seaweed drifted in and thrown on the shore by the waves. We ought to place these by themselves, as we cannot be certain of their locality.
After a time the tide begins to recede, and our first rocky pool is accessible. Going down on our knees, knife in hand, we slip the blade under a delicate structure as close to the rock as possible, then place our first find in our bottle.
