There is a definite field of usefulness for an up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the species of Cyperaceae found growing without cultivation within the borders of the State of Tennessee. With this in mind, the writer set about gathering material for the studies presented herewith. A large portion of the work done in connection with this thesis was accomplished during the last two years. Field studies and collections were made in many localities in the eastern half of Tennessee. For material collected west of Nashville, reference has been made to specimens deposited in The University of Tennessee herbarium by A. Gattinger, F. Lamson-Schribner, S. M. Bain, and others.
