Abstract

While the authors were undergraduate students in the Biology Department at Parsons College, a major part of their duties as departmental assistants was the preparation of a herbarium of southeastern Iowa plants. Extensive collections were made in Jefferson and Van Buren Counties, and some collecting was done in the neighboring counties. The project was begun in the spring of 1933 under the direction of the late Dr. Charles Carter, then Head of the Department of Biology at Parsons College. As originally planned, the scope of the project included the ten southeasternmost counties in the state, but only a few specimens were actually obtained by the authors in Davis, Keokuk, Lee, Louisa, Wapello and Washington Counties. The senior author terminated his field work in the autumn of 1936, but the junior author was able to make additional collections at intervals during the years 1937 to 1940. Supplemental collections were made in Jefferson County by both authors in the late summer of 1946.
