An Eocene flora from trans-Pecos Texas

Professional Paper 125-A



During the fall of 1916 I received a small collection of fossil plants which had been obtained during a geologic reconnaissance of the trans-Pecos region of Texas, by Charles Lawrence Baker. A preliminary report was sent to Mr. Baker in November of that year and was quoted in his discussion of the geology of that region. I have since made a careful study of the collection, and although it contains only a few species the occurrence of fossil plans in this region is worthy of more definite and detailed record, especially as these plants enabled me to assign a definite age to the beginning of the igneous activity of the region and to establish correlations between the floras of the Mississippi embayment and the Rocky Mountain Region.
