Abstract

It has always seemed to me that there is abundant room for such botanists as have little time to do original work to devote a few moments in taking notes on the leafing, flowering and ripening of seeds of our native and cultivated plants, in short everything that may be considered under the head of phaenological observations. These observations, like those on the pollination of flowers may be made at odd moments and would be of great service to working botanists. If a few scattering botanists would only collect insects on various flowers and make field observations, then turn them over to a botanist like Mr. Roberts, it would be of incalculable benefit. So, too, in this phaenological work botanists all over the country should make a few observations, bring them together so that some general conclusions and tabulations might be made. I think it is fortunate that the Weather Bureau of the Department of Agriculture is undertaking this work and that Prof. Bailey is to bring together some of the scattered information on this subject.
