During the summer of 1954 the author was privileged to conduct floristic and ecological studies on the Edmund Niles Huyck Preserve, located near Rensselaerville, in Albany County, New York. This Preserve is about 470 acres in size and centers about two bodies of water. The larger is called Lake Myosotis, after the wild forget-me-not, Myosotis laxa Lehm, which is abundant along its margin. The Preserve was established in 1931, in memory of Edmund Niles Huyck, by his widow and friends, and the majority of it has been under strict and complete protection from disturbance since that time. Parts of the Preserve have been without disturbances (principally logging and grazing) since the latter part of the 19th century.
