July 31, 1887 [SBMP]: “A paper was read from Pittonia, a publication used by Prof. E. L. Greene of the State University. This gives an account of Mr. Greene’s visit to San Miguel Island last summer and a list of 120 plants, the result of two weeks’ botanizing on that island. Much of the flora is peculiar to the island, and he gives reasons for supposing that it is indigenous rather than introduced. The annual species and many of the early flowered perennials were too far gone for identification, and he thinks many more new species might be found earlier in the season.”
