Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 12 Aug 2003 e-mail from Dan Post see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that in Flora North America, Carex dudleyi is treated as a synonym of Carex densa.
Correspondence 2 27 Aug 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Carex densa (L. H. Bailey) L. H. Bailey (Mem. Torrey Bot. Club 1:50. 1889) was based on Carex brongniartii var. densa L. H. Bailey (Proc. Amer. Acad. Arts and Sci. 22:137. 1886), so that the correct author citation is Carex densa (L. H. Bailey) L. H. Bailey, as indicated in this Index.
Correspondence 3 24 Jan 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that Carex breviligulata (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym) was published by Kenneth K. Mackenzie (Mack. in Authors of Plant Names) in Erythea 8:92 (1922). [Therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Carex breviligulata Mack., from Carex breviligulata L. H. Bailey previously in this Index, 31 Jan 2008.]
