Department of Botany and Entomology
The materials for this Bulletin have been collected and the analyses have been made during a period extending over several years. In reality this work is a continuation of that commenced in Bulletin No. 40 of this Station. Prof. Thomas A. Williams, now deceased, continued the collection of native grasses, etc., after Bulletin No. 40 was issued. Before he had severed his connection with this Station he had collected the following plants: Carex pennsylvanica, Stipa comata, Trifolium,alexandrium, Panicum miliacium, var. Sibericum, Polygonum ramosissimum, Ornithopus sativus, Festuca octiflora, Carex laxiflora, Elymus sibericus, Muhlenbergia ambigua, Spergula arvensis, Hordeum pusill um, Heirochloe borealis, Calamagrostis montanensis, Vicia villosa, Eragrostis abysinica, Lupinus luteus, and Spartina gracilis. The descriptions and analyses of these will appear in the· following pages excepting that of the Siberian Millet. Owing to the fact that the origin and authenticity of the seed sample are in question, the description is omitted.
