Abstract

As I have occasionally found the curious stony plug of which Mr. Thiselton Dyer writes (NATURE, vol. xxxv. p. 396), in the joints of bamboos accidentally broken, and been much exercised as to the nature and origin of the phenomenon, I have been much interested by his paper. May I further suggest that it is to a certain extent pathological—due, that is, to arrested growth, either longitudinal or lateral, in the shoot next above the joint in which the stony secretion or sediment is found.
