Hailed as the first of the ' Great Surveys ' of the Fortieth Parallel, Clarence King's vision was to survey across the West from the crest of the Sierra Nevada to the western slope of the Rockies. During the five seasons between 1867-69 Sereno Watson collected 19,000 plant specimens in Nevada and Utah. Many of these now form part of the Smithsonian's botanical collection at the National Museum of Natural History.
