Additional information

In the course of the present study I have had encouragement from many friends who have helped to find the cherries in the field and who have been generous with loans of herbarium material. A part of the field-work was made possible by grants in research from the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies, University of Michigan, and a part of the cost of publication has been defrayed by a grant from the University Herbarium. The herbaria from which specimens are cited are indicated in the following pages by appropriate abbreviations: University of Arizona (ARIZ), Chicago Natural History Museum (F), University of Georgia (GA), Gray Herbarium, Harvard University (GH), University of Michigan (MICH), Missouri Botanical Garden (MO), New York Botanical Garden (NY), Southern Methodist University (SMU), University of Texas (TEX), United States National Herbarium (US), Forest Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture (USFS), United States National Arboretum (USNA). Through the kindness of the curators in charge, I have also been able to study the specimens in the herbarium of North Carolina State College, and in the Tracy Herbarium of Texas A. & M. College.
