Fungi and Bacteria


    THOSE of us who have been awaiting the publication of a new edition of De Bary's “Morphologic und Physiologic der Pilze, Flechten, und Myxomyceten” of eighteen years ago, will be neither surprised nor disappointed to find that the author has felt compelled to change the title as well as to effect such important alterations in the text that the book is not only virtually but really a new one. This is, moreover, extremely satisfactory, since it shows that the province of mycology has been extended during the period named. How far this extension is due to the labours and influence of the writer of the book before us is well known to all botanists.

    Vergleichende Morphologie und Biologie der Pilze, Mycetozoen, und Bacterien.

    By A. De Bary. (Leipzig: Engelmann, 1884.)
