Historical Note

The USU Intermountain Herbarium is a research facility within the Department of Biology (Botany). The collections include a wide variety of plant specimens and research focuses on taxonomy of flora in the Intermountain West. The Herbarium began in March 1932. Bassett Maguire was the first curator and the nucleus of the collection initially came from Marcus M. Jones. Arthur H. Holmgren was the second curator of the collection starting in 1943.

1:02:01: "In the foreground is the upper study unit. The background gives and idea of the degree of stocking in the studey area. The entire stand is similar to the one shown in the illustration"
1:02:02: "Lower slop with juniper seedlings in the left foreground. The seedlings are invading a spot of sagebrush that is dying out"
1:02:03: "This picture was taken midway up the slope. The stumps are from the 1953 post cut. The area has been heavily cut in the past and the tress in the background are about average for the area"
1:02:04: "Twelve inch tree with a completely rotten center. The inch of sapwood is not damaged by the rot. The entire stem is unmerchantable, due to the rot"
1:02:05: "The conk from Figure 5 showing the tomentose, furrowed condition which was described by Boyce. The yellow under surface is barely showing at the bottom of the conk. The conk is old and mature; therefore, it is darker than the bark of the tree. This same conk is shown in Figure 8"
1:02:06: "A very old conk that was on an over-mature tree. The yellowish under surface has begun to fade to a darker yellowish-brown"
1:02:07: "Multiple conks on a single stem. The fourth is directly behind the conk in the foreground. More than one conk per tree is very rare and undoubtedly, the tree is rotten beyond use"
1:02:08: "Tufted leaves and dying branches on a tree that is approximately eighteen feet in height and sixteen inches in diameter. A conk is directly in the center of the tree trunk about two feet above the ground. The rot extends more that six feet up the tree. This tree is typical of the over-mature individuals in the area"
1:02:09: "Bumping this tree produces a drum-like sound, due to the rotten center"
