The Reception and Utilisation of Energy by a Green Leaf

Nature volume 71, pages 522526 (30 March 1905) | Download Citation



THE subject of my lecture is derived from the series of papers laid before the society to-day by my colleagues and myself, dealing with some of the physiological processes of green leaves. In giving an account of some of these investigations I shall dwell mainly on their relation to the energetics of the leaf, and shall endeavour to show how the leaf behaves under various conditions when regarded from the point of view of the exchange of energy between itself and its surroundings.
