Excerpt from Plants of the Bermudas: Or Somers' Islands
More important cultivated plants which have been introduced are referred to under their respective orders, and a list of those of less importance will be found at the end of the book.
Some few technical terms ha... ve, of necessity, been used, but an explanation of these will be found in the Glossary.
As an apology for introducing this work, I may state that, hitherto, the only attempt in this direction has been an alphabet ical catalogue of plants compiled by Dr. Hinson from a list left in the Public Library by Governor Lefroy. To this Catalogue I have now added about one hundred and fifty species of indigenous and naturalized plants - a large number considering the small area (twenty square miles) of our Islands.
