Botanical Wall Diagrams

Nature volume 44, page 173 | Download Citation



A FIRST instalment of six of these diagrams is now published. The plants illustrated so far are: common elder, deadly nightshade, scarlet runner, hop, Virginia tobacco, and wild camomile. We do not know on what principle the selection has been made. It is rather a pity that, out of so small a number, two (deadly nightshade and tobacco) belong to the same natural order, and show no very essential structural differences. In time we hope that all the important orders will be represented. The drawings (executed by Engleder, of Munich) are quite artistic, and the colouring excellent. The diagrams are thus very pleasing as pictures, and at the same time the botanical details are correct.
