Vorschule der Pflanzenphysiologie, eine experimentelle Einführung in das Leben der Pflanzen

Article metrics

Abstract

THIS, book consists of instructions for the performance of 295 experiments in plant physiology in the widest sense. It includes, not only the physiology of nutrition and movement, but also a section on reproduction which takes in the mechanism of pollination, asexual reproduction by means of bulbils, experiments on regeneration, on the behaviour of potato tubers, and on grafting. The instructions are well arranged, and they form, with accessory explanations, a fairly continuous whole. A useful appendix is added, in which the needful outfit in apparatus and reagents is given, together with hints on laboratory methods. The book is intended partly for the “cultivated layman” and partly for the students of the Gymnasium and Realschule. It will, however, prove useful to the teachers in English universities, as well as to others who have discovered the wisdom of making even advanced students perform for themselves elementary experiments.
