It contains taxonomic descriptions of all native of naturalized species of the monocots that occur in Ohio, or that did occur within the period represented by Ohio herbaria. Many local adventive species and garden escapes are also included, and mention is made of many ornamentals and food plants and others of economic importance. Over 650 species of monocots are recognized in the Ohio flora, and many varieties and a number of forms and hybrids swell this number to over 700 taxa. The introduction provides a discussion of the correlation of species-ranges with physical features of the environment, and with glacial migrations. It suggests problems in population-variation, hybridization, and introgression.'
