Bailey placed his taxonomic studies of Rubus at the top of his accomplishments in systematic botany. Before 1890, he published three papers on native dewberries, followed in 1895 by an extensive treatment of cultivated blackberries and their indigenous counterparts. In 1932, he published his first major monograph and, from 1941 to 1945, his major work, “The Genus Rubus in North America,” describing 487 species. The Rubus herbarium at the Hortorium contains more than 33,000 collections, most of them created by Bailey.
