In more formally opening up the botanical work of the survey it is proposed, in accordance with these views, to emphasize at first two mutually supplementary features, the preservation of a herbarium to serve as a basis for study, and the systematic exploration of the less known parts of the state; at the same time data will be gathered, as far as possible, upon all questions of interest. connected with the state flora, which will be embodied in reports as occasion requires. It is not intended to interrupt, the general enumeration of plants already referred to, a part of the survey originated and prosecuted by Mr. Upham, with the co-operation of many local collectors, including several specially enthusiastic students of field botany.
The locality selected for exploration for the season of 1886 was Vermilion lake and vicinity, a region lying between the North shore of lake Superior and the International Boundry.
