Within easy reach of practically all colleges and high schools of Iowa and all prairie states there is a wealth of little used biological material for botany and other biological courses. This situation is especially true with respect to the simpler plants as the algae, fungi, lichens, hepatics, or liverworts, mosses, the ferns, and the fern allies. For this neighborhood growing material, commonly if not generally, there is substituted preserved material from the laboratory shelf and bearing the label of some company foreign to the state.
