    Brief Note: Fatoua villosa (Moraceae), Mulberry Weed, in Ohio
    (1993-12) Vincent, Michael A.
    Fatoua villosa (Thunb.) Nakai (Moraceae) is reported from Ohio, from outdoor sites in Butler, Franklin, and Washington counties, and from greenhouse sites in Athens, Butler, and Hamilton counties. The species was first found in the state in 1979, but has not previously been reported in floristic literature for Ohio. It probably entered the state through greenhouses and nursery stock from which it escaped into weedy areas and flower beds. It persists in outdoor situations in the state and is likely to become a common weedy species in Ohio. An illustration is included for the first time in North American botanical literature.

    Contribution to the Dinoflagellate Flora of Ohio
    (1993-12) Carty, Susan
    Water samples were collected from over 100 sites in Ohio in a survey for dinoflagellates. Whole water and tows were taken from ponds, lakes, and reservoirs. Approximately half the samples contained dinoflagellates and 24 taxa were identified including 13 not previously reported from Ohio. New taxa include Ceratium brachyceros, Peridinium umbonatum, Peridinium volzii, Thompsodinium intermedium, Peridiniopsis cunningtonii, Cystodinedria inermis, Gymnodinium austriacum,G. biemale, andCr. wawrikae. Four of the published forms of. Ceratium hirundinella were recognized including forma silesiacum, forma piburgense, forma scotticum, and forma gracile.

    Two New Amoebae, Striamoeba sparolata n. sp. and Flamella tiara n. sp., from Fresh Water
    (1993-12) Fishbeck, Dale W.; Bovee, Eugene C.
    Twp new amoebae are described from phase contrast observations made on specimens collected from Florida and Ohio, USA. Ohio specimens occurred among Aufwuchs on the midland painted turtle, Chrysemys picta marginata, and the common snapping turtle, Chelydra serpentina serpentina, while Florida specimens were found among the bottom detritus in muddy ponds. Striamoeba sparolata n. sp. (Thecamoebidae) is spearhead-shaped, 35-45 (xm by 12.5-22.5 |^m at the broadest point when in motion, with a clear bulbous anterior end and smooth uroid. There are usually two indistinct dorsal ridges, a spherical nucleus, 2-4 jam in diameter with a variable number of parietal nucleolar pieces and many endoplasmic lightrefractile granules. No pseudopods are formed during locomotion. Flamella tiara n. sp. (Flabellulidae) exhibits continuous changes in shape while in rapid motion but is more or less broadly arcate in steady slow progress. This amoeba is 30-40 |im wide, 12-25 |^m long, with many conical, papulate subpseudopodia extending from the body surface and leading edge. Adhesive, pseudo-uroidal filaments are trailed. An indistinct, spherical nucleus, about 3.5 (im, is present. The endoplasm is finely granular with no crystals. These two rarely encountered species occur as small populations and the present description will enable recognition by future researchers.

    Late Glacial Origin of the Maumee Valley Terraces, Northwestern Ohio
    (1993-12) Klotz, Jack A.; Forsyth, Jane L.
    Four major paired terraces and six short local terraces have been identified along the Maumee River valley between the Ohio-Indiana state line and Perrysburg in northwestern Ohio by detailed field mapping and study of gaging-station records, water-well logs, and soils data. From highest to lowest, the paired terraces have been named the Antwerp, Florida, Napoleon, and Grand Rapids terraces. The three higher terraces are correlated with Glacial Lakes Warren I and II, Lake Wayne, and Lake Grassmere, respectively, based on similarities in elevation of the lowest end of the terraces and the lake levels. The lowest of the four major terraces, the Grand Rapids Terrace, is rock-defended, controlled by outcrops of the Silurian Tymochtee Dolomite in its channel at Waterville. The short local terraces appear to be related to short-lived stages in the cutting of the Maumee Valley. Although some may correlate with one of the major terrace systems, such correlations remain tentative because of the isolation of these local terraces.

    Map Use in Small-Town Planning Documents in Northeast Ohio
    (1993-12) Jones, Glynn; Kent, Robert B.
    Maps are of fundamental importance to the planning profession. This paper examines the use of maps in planning documents from small towns in northeast Ohio. It considers the frequency of map use, the types of maps utilized, and their quality. Map quality is evaluated by determining the presence or absence of basic map elements and the utilization of a lettering hierarchy for the various map elements. Maps are found in all the plans (median =10) and these represent about one-quarter of non-textual materials. Maps of community facilities and land use are most common, accounting for over half of all maps. Key map elements are included on almost all maps, but few incorporate a lettering hierarchy to reflect the importance of the various elements. The increasing availability of computer mapping programs and the ease with which inadequate maps can be produced make it imperative that planners become more cognizant of the proper techniques for effective cartographic communication. More comprehensive studies are warranted examining the use of maps in planning documents from a wider range of types and sizes of administrative units—i.e., cities, metropolitan areas, and counties
