Further I owe many thanks to Mr. A. Bennett, Croydon, for the revision of M5, to Mr. H. Fisher, Knaresborough, and Mr. Ove Paulsen, Copenhagen, for assisting in proof-reading, as well as to Mr. C. B. Clarke for his valuable informations about the Cyperaceae.
I trust the little book will be Of benefit to the many who study the plants of the Arctic regions, and that it may be as reliable and accurate as possible, though doubtless there are list of Arctic plants which have not come under my notice. I shall be much obliged for the pointing out of such short - comings, as well as for the sending of treatises, available for the composition of Part II.
Though any botanist, whether English or versed in English, at a glance will see that this work is written by foreigners, I trust the language to be sufficiently comprehensible to convey the use of the work.
