Spruce Knob, vegetation, West Virginia,

At the time of a casual vacation visit to the top of Spruce Knob on August 5, 1960, I had not seen William C. Robison’s very interesting account of the vegetation of this mountain top, the highest in West Virginia. Assuming that the mountain had been thoroughly botanized and adequately described, I made only casual notes on the vegetation and a few collections of species that interested me and that were in good condition for specimens. On checking these notes with Robison’s article I find that I have a few observations that should be added to his account.
