"... it must be borne in mind that dots [on distribution maps]... indicate where the different specimens have been collected, therefore where botanists have been. Absence of a dot... does not necessarily mean the species in question does not grow in that state." — A.S. Hitchcock, Manual of the Grasses of the United States
