October 28, 1944
I walked to Omiltemi to buy a few groceries and to see about transportation and collected a few things along the river on the way. I was pleasantly surprised by the ash and blue beech which (both) seem to be rather to be scarce. The glaucus palmetto here extends down below our previous campsite, but becomes scarce, while the one with serrate petioles is much more abundant there. River bottom is usually very narrow in the gorge.

Pedrigal near Contrera, D. F.; Mexico
Dr. Faustino Miranda of the Instituto de Biología. Sr. Pablo Huerta (my friend from Puebla) and I went to Contreras on the street car and bus. We walked 2 or 3 km on the R.R. toward Cuernavaca and turned to the left into the Pedrigal (lava from Xitle) and walked across Cerro Zacayuca and then back into Contreras. Elevations ranged from 8000 to 8400 ft.

November 15, 1944
I returned to La Venta between San Martin (Texmelucan) and Río Frío in the state of Puebla and collected below Puente del Emperador along the river and along the road toward San Martin. Barometer registered 8200 ft. at the bridge today. Saw but did not collect Saponaria officinalis along the road about halfway between La Venta and San Martin.
The dry season has left its impress and many species which were green two weeks ago and are now brown and crisp. Many of the smaller species have completely disappeared. The fruit on Cornus and Smilax has fallen. Crataegus with its large yellow fruit is an important source of fruit: man and beast. Presumably because they are south of the Tropic of Cancer. Certain plants are having their second season of bloom—a common occurrence in some species.

November, 18, 1944
Mr. Tartt and I came by auto to Orizaba where we registered at the Gran Hotel de France, and went on to the dam at Tuxpango about 10 km below Orizaba on the Rio Blanco. The plant is situated 200m. (drop) below the dam at an elevation of about 2800 ft. Inclined railways provides transportation to dam and power plant—at times more than 45° slope.

November 19, 1944
I went back to the Tuxpango Dam (elevation 3300 ft.) and collected on the slope above and around the dam. I then took the trail over the mountain to the power house, but did not collect much beyond the crest of the ridge. (elevation: 3500 ft.)
I watched them work at at “sluicing the dam”. The lake had filled with silt, which amounts to at least a 3-way loss: (1) loss of soil, very fertile; (2) loss of storage capacity; (3) loss of power for more than 2 days when the plant is shut down for

“sluicing”. See photos!


Not too many of the plants were of genera known to me and often I did not know the substratum of mosses or fungi.

November 20, 1944
Camp Experimental de Hule “El Palmar” near Tezonapa, Ver., in the district of San Galite.
I left Orizaba early, took the bus to Cordoba, taxi to RR. station where I arrived just as the train started to pull out “strictly on time!” I just made the platform of one of the last coaches which proved to be RR. pay by car. It was manned by soldiers. By the time the officer “came to”, the train was moving fast. He insisted that I could not stay there and as he would not let me pass through the coach, I asked him what he wanted me to do—“jump off”. He compromised on letting me stay until the first station where I took the first class coach immediately forward. We arrived at Cogolapa, Oaxaca, at 11 a.m. where Dr. José Vera Santos met me. We crossed over intoTezonapa, Ver., where I had breakfast. We bought a few things and took a wild jeep ride out to the Campo with Mr. Stadelman (reared in Kentucky).
The campo is about 15 km out from Tezonapa and has an elevation of about 500 ft. It is at the edge of the tropics and is hot and humid. The number of genera and even familias which I recognize here is not very large.
| Dr. Santos and I spent the rest of the afternoon in the experimental plantings, the private plantation next, and the jungle about it. Red lichens are common here. Termites are rather common. Fungi are still appearing in reduced quantities—none on Central Mesa.
Non-vascular cryptogams: 1280-1307.
November 21, 22, 23, 24, 1944
From Campo Experimental de hule, Tezonapa to Cerro de Cuhuatepec in S.E. Puebla and return (vía paso Asihualt, Río Tonto, ranch of Don Moreno).
Dr. José Vera Santos, Benito Tapia, Marsolino Sánchez (workers in the Campo and I (mule carried supplies and luggage) set out by trail through jungle, plantation and milpas to cerro de Cuhautepec. We ate lunch at Río Tonto after crossing the river by dugout canoe (the mule swam). Late in the afternoon we came to the ranch of Don Moreno where we stayed all night. One of his workers, Juan Sánchez, joined the party in the morning as guide and helper. Ranch was at elevation of about 1700 ft. Nov. 22 we climbed to about 2700 feet where we early stopped and made camp on a 45° slope because of the illness of benito. (Campsite muddy and full of ants.) Nov. 23 we climbed to the top (alt. 3800 ft.) and returned just at dark. Nov. 24, we broke camp, collected untill 11 a.m. and returned to the ranch, ate lunch at 3 p.m. and returned (Río Tonto at dark and rest of the way by moolight arriving at 9 p.m.).
The vascular vegetation is essentially tropical and subtropical even to the top of the mountain. I knew few plants. Genera which I remember werw: Lygodium, Stachys, Dahlia of the vining type, orange flower, a Bradburga like vine (see specimen); Polyporus (either sanguineus or cinnabarius) was rather common.
The creek which we crossed before we began to climb toward the ranch was called Xamelapa. High mountain behind Cuhuatepec Don Moreno called Cuazuspa. Moreno’s ranch called Cocajapa.
High lights of the trip: camp on 45° (or more) slope with ant nest and much rain and mud.
