DescriptionThis is a second report on the chromosome numbers of native and introduced grasses. The first report (Brown, 1950) concerned the chromosome numbers of eighty species in thirty-eight genera of nine tribes of the Gramineae. The present is the result of a cytological study of forty-four species (all but two additional to the first report) in twenty-four genera of five tribes. As in the previous paper, identification and nomenclature of all United States grasses are according to Hitchcock (1935). Herbarium specimens have been made of parts of the plants studied and are filed in the University of Texas Herbarium. Many of the plants are growing in the grass garden of the Plant Research Institute.
