Kentucky, Pteridophyta

Braun’s Catalog, of Spermatophytes of Kentucky (1943) is by far the most complete and informative treatment of Kentucky Flora to date. In addition to its listing of 1636 native and 188 introduced species, profuse habitat notes and distribution by counties are given. In 19-42 McFarland published an unannotated list of Kentucky species including 63 Pteridophyta and 1639 seed plants. The value of such bare lists is competently discussed by Peattie (1946) in a recent issue of Castanea.
