rusts, Uredinales, plant parasitic fungi, Loess Hills
The records of rust fungi in the Loess Hills region of Iowa show that the earliest collections were made in the Turin (Monona Co.) and Sioux City (Woodbury Co.) areas by L.H. Pammel in the late 1880s. Scattered collections were made by J.C. Gilman and W.A. Archer in the late 1920s, as part of a statewide plant disease survey. Only 24 species of rusts had been reported from this region before the Loess Hills spring forays of 1981-1983. Twenty-three additional species were collected during the three foray years. Three of these species had not been previously reported from Iowa. Additional rust species might be found in this area if field studies were conducted later in the summer.
