I have attempted to deal with those plants only, which bear attractively colored' fruits. These fruits are the more noticeable ones; they do not, in most cases, develop until the blossoms have entirely disappeared; and they naturally fall into a class by themselves, being adapted for the same method of seed dispersal. The list will naturally include herbs, Shrubs, and trees. A guide based on the kind and strue ture Of the fruit will aid in determining the family to which a plant belongs, and under each family the species are grouped by colors. The illustrations will also aid in identifying specimens. If the acquaintance of approximately two hundred plants of our northeastern section in their fruited stage is made more accessible; if added attention is attracted to the result of the work of the ﬂower, making our knowledge of the cycle of the plant's life more complete, the work, fragmentary though it be, may have a place.
