Fernow Hickory (Hicoria Fernowiana Sudw.)
Abstract:Hickory nomenclature is much confused. The genus needs correlated study by competent persons from the systematic, ecological, genetic, and economic standpoints. This paper contributes its bit toward the clarification of this complex problem. Its author has recently rediscovered in Washington, D. C., the type tree of Hicoria fernowiana, a long-forgotten species of the late Mr. Sudworth. It is probable that much of the "nutmeg hickory" of literature is misnamed and is, in part at least, Fernow hickory.
