1913 Excerpt: ...of view taken--has been accumulating in the
Herbarium of the University of Toronto, and it is from these that
the following partial list is compiled. So far nothing on the
Slime-Moulds of Ontario has been published. W. G. Serimgeour, M.A.,
a graduate student, worked over a considerable mass of material in
the University Herbarium, and embodied the results of his labours
in a Master's thesis--now on file in the library. The publication
of his paper was deferred until a wider area of the Province had
been explored. It will doubtless appear in time. Several local
collectors have made contributions, and these have been highly
valued. Slime moulds are easily gathered and require nothing more
than careful handling. For transporting or mailing, the pieces of
substratum to which they adhere should be firmly glued or sewn to
the bottom of a pasteboard box--nothing more. As the number of bona
fide species described from the North Temperate Zone is not more
than throo hundred, it is quito within roason to heliove that
ono-third of these are representod within easy collooting distanoo
of the city. Spocimens of the forms marked with an astorisk were
found in High Park. Ceratlomyxaceae, Ooratiomyxa frutioulosa,
