Goodale's “Physiological Botany”


THE first volume of Asa Gray's “Botanical Text-book appeared in 1842, and, in its later editions, “Structural Botany” is still a valued hand-book. Prof. Goodale's “Physiological Botany” forms the second volume, and the series is to be completed by Prof. Farlow's “Introduction to Cryptogamic Botany,” and by that fourth volume on the natural orders of Phanerogams which Asa Gray “hoped rather than expected” to contribute.

Physiological Botany. I. Outlines of the Histology of Phænogamous Plants; II. Vegetable Physiology.

By George Lincoln Goodale, Professor of Botany in Harvard University. Gray's Botanical Text-book (Sixth Edition), Vol. II. (London: Macmillan and Co., 1890.)
