Torrey was the center around which the botany of North America first became systematized. To him came most of the botanical materials gathered by all the great expeditions of his time, the military and geographical explorations and the railroad surveys that tapped the west from Canada to Mexico. He was the instructor, consultant, or associate of every prominent North American botanist of the day, and together with Asa Gray, once his pupil, he produced the Flora of North America, the first great systematic work on a continental scale in the New World.
