The object of this paper is to give the results of field observation and paleontologic study of the Upper Carboniferous of southwestern Iowa, extending over several years, as opportunity offered. It has been necessary that portions of the adjacent states of Missouri and Nebraska be included in this investigation, to complete and confirm the results obtained by studies of the stratigraphy of Iowa. Good exposures of outcrops in Iowa are infrequent and widely scattered; correlations are therefore difficult to make without the information to be derived from the examination of outcrops in adjacent territory.
