Aside from the list by Bessey in 1884, the few algae mentioned by Shimek (Proc. Ia. Acad. Sci. 4:80, 1896), and the article on diatoms by Myers (Proc. Ia. Acad. Sci. 6:47, 1898.) the present writer finds nothing in print regarding the algae of Iowa. Surely this condition is not due to the fact that algae have not been observed frequently enough, for the plants are so interesting that the student of aquatic flora always stops to study them as thoroughly as time at hand will permit.
