Not illustrated. 1895 Excerpt: ... convince me that its true rank is that of a species. I have long thought that the establishment of the genus Chrysothamnus was one of Nuttall's happiest propositions. He saw that these tufted shrubs of western alkaline plains were generically distinct from DeCandolle's Bigelovia. And Gray, his young colleague in the study of these plants, was of the same opinion. It was unfortunate that Gray, instead of following Nuttall as to the new genus, should have chosen to follow one far less deserving to be taken as an authority. Schelchtendal had, in 1839 or 1840, referred a Mexican species of what was of Nuttall's genus Isocoma to that Old World subgenus of Aster called Linosyris; and Gray, in the Torrey & Gray Flora proceeded, in the face of Nuttall's greatly superior knowledge of botany in general, and of these plants in particular, to dispose all the Ghrysothamni under the Old World herbaceous genus Linosyris. This course, entered upon in much ignorance as to the real characteristics both of the foreign Linosyris, and of the to him almost equally foreign shrubs of western plains and mountains, he held to for more than thirty years. But in 1873, Bentham, when he came to take up the final examination of all known Asteroidero, soon demonstrated the absence of near affinity between Linosyris proper and these shrubs of the Far West, and perceived the necessity of reinstating Nuttall's Chrysothamnus. This was done in the Genera Plantarum; and I think we should have had little further trouble with the nomenclature of these plants had not Bentham merged in his Chrysothamnus the herbaceous genus Bigelovia, i. e., Chondrophora. At this juncture Gray asserted the priority of Bigelovia over Chrysothamnus, and so all the species became renamed under Bigelovia; Bentham ...
