Abstract

As the taxonomic consideration of the Early Carbonic formations of the American continent has proceeded during the quarter of a century just passed, complication, rather than simplification, has taken place. Systematic arrangement of the terranes has become less rather than more clearly defined. The recent attempt to amplify one of the subordinate divisional titles so as to cover the whole has been attended by rather incongruous consequences. Small real advancement has resulted from mere change in nomenclature. Bureaucratic authority has been unable to take the place of fact, and its dictates have been as unfortunate, as they have been unsatisfactory and unreal.
