Abstract:

Preface to the second edition: The publication of a new edition of this book has afforded an opportunity to incorporate new material and to make certain other modifications which reflect suggestions that have been gratefully received from teachers throughout the country. The author regrets that he was unable to introduce all the proposals made by his friends in other institutions. An entirely new chapter has been added in order to present a brief treatment of the more prominent vegetative features that are helpful in taxonomic work. A change that will be revealed by casual examiniation affects the large, folded chart. This has been simplified and illustrated so that it is not quite so much of a "puzzle" to the student who is beginning work of this kind. A new diagram has also been introduced (page 352) in order to present an interpretation of the apetalous, diclinous, and anemophilous groups that is not shown in the preceding outline. The map showing the ranges of various floras and manuals (Fig. 211) has been revised to include a few important additions to the growing literature in that phase of the subject. To the reference books noted in the first edition has been added a short list of valuable American works that have been published since 1929. The two short chapters dealing with an outline of the history of classification have been moved to a position immediately following the treatment of the various groups of flowering plants. This change makes for more continuity in the treatment of the principal material of the book. In response to requests from many students and from other teachers who have used the book there has been added a brief glossary which includes the more important terms used in the book.--Raymond J. Pool.--Lincoln, Nebraska, April, 1941.
