CONTRIBUTIONS to a more exact knowledge of the contents of the vegetable cell have increased of late to an extent which justifies the hope that some generalisation of the facts may before long be possible; meanwhile, botanists must have experienced a feeling akin to dismay at the scattered condition of much of the literature, and the apparent hopelessness of collating the facts dealing with normal and abnormal cell contents. The works of Strasburger, Schmitz, Schimper, and others have already cleared the way to a better comprehension of many details, especially with regard to the cell nucleus and starch grains; but with each step it has been felt that the pushing back of the phenomena towards a common cause has raised other difficulties hitherto unforeseen.
