Abstract

Students of plant and animal distribution are naturally interested in exact geographic designation, and they frequently suffer inconvenience from the inaccuracy or misconception of locality names. Confusion in our western records sometimes arises because the earlier explorers worked in an unsettled wilderness in which accurate geographic designation was difficult or impossible, and again from the fact that names were often at first applied to larger areas than those to which the name is at present restricted.
