The flora of the Catahoula Sandstone

Professional Paper



During the progress of my studies of the fossil floras of the Gulf Coastal Plain, embracing all horizons from the Lower Cretaceous to the Pleistocene and prosecuted under the general direction of T. Wayland Vaughan, material representing the floras of all the major stratigraphic units in the area extending from western Florida to central Texas has been discovered. Field work and office studies of all these floras have proceeded more or less simultaneously, and a large amount of manuscript in various stages of completion has been accumulated. The floras of the Upper Cretaceous and Eocene of South Carolina and Georgia have been described and a report on the very large lower Eocene floras is now in press.
