THE FLORA OF FRANKLIN COUNTY. -- EXOGENS.


By O. M. Meyncke.


The following list embraces the indigenous, naturalized, and adventive plants growing in Franklin County, Indiana. The list is more especially confined to the territory within the immediate vicinity of the Town of Brookville.

The author set out with the determination to exclude all from the list which he himself had not seen growing in the County. Hence some species whose existence here was supported by good authority, and which fact the author was reasonably certain, were omitted on the principle that it is much easier afterwards to add to the list than to take from it. Though he has botanized in the region for several years, he feels sure that there are a number of plants growing in the limits which have not been noticed. With the exception of a partial list of the trees reported by Dr. Rufus Haymond (1869) in making the observations of the local Flora no support has been derived from a predecessor in this branch of natural history.

Observations on the Flora of this County are reserved for a future number of the Bulletin of the Brookville Society of Natural History.

As far as the Order Caprifoliaceæ the nomenclature and arrangement corresponds with that of Watson's Bibliographical Index to North American Botany, thereafter with that given in the latest edition of Gray's Manual of the Northern United States.
