Abstract

The Research Station was used as a base while working in the Teton Mountains and the adjacent Pinyon Peak Highlands in July and August. Studies were concerned with the classification, distribution and evolution of species of Sedum, the genus of stonecrops. Detailed studies of population, as part of a sampling survey, and collections of living plants for experimental investigations at Ithaca were made. The small laboratory at the Station made possible the temporary culture of plants there, until they could be either shipped or taken back to Ithaca. Also, the program at the Station included preliminary microscopic examinations of the gross morphology, especially of the floral parts. The work on Sedum in 1966 is part of a comprehensive study of the whole genus. Results of the research in Wyoming are being incorporated in the manuscript of a book on the North American species. Project Number 142.
