Abstract

This botanical survey of the vascular plants of Cedar County, Iowa, was made in an effort to increase our knowledge of the vegetation of eastern Iowa. Prior to this survey, relatively little botanical collecting had been done in Cedar County. Thirty-two specimens from Cedar County were found by the writer in looking through the herbarium of the State University of Iowa. These were collected by Prof. B. Shimek and Prof. W. A. Anderson. The field work was carried on for a period of one growing season. Over 4,000 miles were traveled by the writer in making the survey. The first collections were made April 23, 1950, the last October 16, 1950. 1,939 collections were made, totaling approximately 3,900 specimens. A total of 775 different species of vascular plants are listed, 748 of which were collected by the writer.
