The results embodied in the accompanying catalogue are based on specimens in the College herberium, and on notes taken in the field by Professor T. A. Williams and the writer. The nomenclature followed is the modification of the Paris Code adopted by the Botanical Club of the American Association for the Advancement of Science at Rochester in 1892 and amended at the Madison, Wis., meeting in 1893. The only synonyms given are such as would be a help to one accustomed to using Gray's Manual. In preparing this catalogue, Dr. P. A. Rydberg's Flora of the Black Hills has been freely used. Specimens have also been received from various collectors in that region. Professor Williams has made extensive collections in the Sioux Valley, has done considerable work along Bigstone Lake, and has made one trip from Pierre to Rapid City and return, obtaining many interesting specimens, especially from the Badlands. Messrs. David Griffiths, Earl Douglass, Jno. J.Thornber, students of Professor Williams, have done considerable collecting east of the Missouri river. Mr. L. W. Carter has made various collecting trips in the eastern part of the state, and, in company with Mr. Griffiths, one extended trip from Forest City along the Moreau rive� to the Black Hills, returning along the Cheyenne River to Fort Pierre. The writer has collected over most of the state east of the Missouri River, and, in company with Mr. J. R. Towne, in the summer of 1897 made very careful examinations of the Little Minnesota River and its tributaries. On this trip many eastern species heretofore unknown to the state were obtained.
