    THE title conveys a very imperfect idea of the nature of this work, which stands apart from all others that have been issued as introductions to the study of botany. The method of teaching botany by a careful investigation of selected types is, indeed, well known and much employed; but it has never been carried out, in English works at least, with any approach to the thoroughness of study of the types in themselves and in their relations to their environment and to their allies that we find here.
