The investigation, the result of a part of which is here presented, was made for the purpose of ascertaining the character of the various structural adaptations to environment which appear in the ordinary plants of our Iowa prairies. Of the 271 characteristic species of our prairies 65, representing a wide range of families and genera, were selected for these studies. The material for this purpose was collected on the dry prairie ridges or bluffs in Harrison county, and on the less rugged prairie in the vicinity of the Okoboji lakes, and at Iowa City.
