Abstract:...the issue of a series of publications has been undertaken, which it is intended to devote especially to the natural history of Illinois. These bulletins will contain original contributions to a knowledge of any department of the natural history of the state ; such compilations, synopses, and the like, as will bring together widely dispersed and virtually inaccessible published matter relating to the local natural history, placing it in manageable form, within reach of the ordinary student ; and papers of value on economical science. Within these limits it is desired that the publication may be made the organ of all Illinois naturalists, upon whose active aid the success, and especially the degree of usefulness, of the enterprise is, of course, almost entirely dependent. It is believed that by thus limiting the undertaking to a special field in which our own naturalists may be supposed to be better able to work than any others, and to which they are more likely to devote themselves with ardor and success, all the advantages of a local stimulus to research may be gained without inflicting upon science any increase of the number of rival centers of publication of similar scope and purpose...
