Abstract

An inserted table of contents contains a full listing of localities and corresponding collector numbers. This field book contains a specimen list of botanical specimens collected by F. R. Fosberg from 12 January to 7 June 1970 in Seychelles, Virginia, and West Virginia. Collection numbers 51959-52221 are included. Specimen list includes scientific name, date, locality, collector number, with occasional notes on locality or physical descriptions of specimens (size, color, etc.) Also included are some longer narrative notes on vegetation in various localities. Localities include Mahe Island, Cousin Island (Seychelles); Sleepy Hollow (Virginia); and Shepherdstown (West Virginia). Several labels for "Plants of West Virginia" are included, with numbers 52213 to 52221. A roughly map drawn map, depicting the distribution of vegetation on Cousin Island, can be found on page 49.
