WHEN one recognises the immense importance of continually keeping before the student, the fact that from whatever standpoint the plant is viewed, physiological considerations must never be lost sight of, one cannot but welcome the appearance of Dr. Haberlandt's text-book on physiological plant anatomy, and one is disposed to do so with more than ordinary favour, recalling those chapters on physiological organography which appeared some three years ago in Prof. Sachs's “Vorlesungen.” The subject is one to which Dr. Haberlandt has specially devoted himself, the present volume being in fact the most recent of a series of detailed publications. On this account it is not surprising to find that much of the subject-matter is not new, and that of the twelve sections into which the book is divided five have already appeared in the article in Schenk's handbook entitled “Die physiologischen Leistungen der Pflanzengewebes.” Dr. Haberlandt's aim on the present occasion is to publish as complete an account as may be, of the present history of the subject, and the great point upon which he insists, is that the whole anatomical structure and the mode of arrangement of the various tissues composing the plant, are simply so many illustrations of the phenomenon of adaptation to physiological needs.
