Seasonal Botany, a Supplementary Text-book


    PROBABLY most teaching botanists looking back upon their early experiences when they first found it necessary to draft a syllabus of instruction can recall an attempt to prepare a course adapted to the round of the seasons. In the case of pure observational study such a course is profitable, but it is the general experience that a seasonal adjustment does not accord with the best morphological or physiological sequence, and this opinion is not modified by the arguments or scheme put forward in the present instance.
