BotanyThis paper is based almost wholly on material recently collected in Sorsogon Province, Luzon, a region in which very little field work has been prosecuted in botany since the exploration of that province by Haenke, one of the botanists of the Malaspina Expedition, in about the year 1792. The field work was done by Maximo Ramos, who spent from July 22, 1915, to September 14, 1915, in Sorsogon, working on Bulusan Volcano, Mount Kililibong, Mount Pocdal, Mount Bogacaua, Mount Lalao, and at Lake Polog. In this time he collected about four hundred numbers of flowering plants and ferns, of which a number, on examination, prove to be undescribed species. In addition to the forty previously undescribed forms considered in this paper, Mr. Elmer has indicated nineteen additional sheets of this collection as representing new species, presumably in those cases where material collected by Ramos matches material collected by himself in his exploration of Sorsogon subsequent to Ramoss trip. Some material, on account of inadequate specimens, immature flowers, or lack of flowers or fruits, still remains to be considered at a later date when the species shall have been collected again.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
