This study was undertaken to obtain more basic information about top and root development during the first season. The plants selected for study were: Petalostemon purpureus (purple prairie clover), Petalostemon candidus (white prairie clover), Psoralea tenuiflora (wild alfalfa), Psoralea cuspidata (prostrate wild alfalfa), and Vicia americana linearis (vetch). Vetch is given as Vicia sparsifolia in Rydberg (1932) but the seeds received were labeled as above and this name was retained. In the following pages it is referred to as Vicia americana for briefness.
