The Teaching Botanist A Manual of Information upon Botanical Instruction, including Outlines and Directions for a Synthetic General Course

Nature volume 85, page 36 (10 November 1910) | Download Citation



THE first edition of Prof. Ganong's book received a welcome on this side the Atlantic such as is accorded to few elementary botanical works produced in America, and it has proved of the greatest value to many engaged in the teaching of elementary botany, or in training as future teachers of the subject. The second edition, lately published, has been thoroughly revised, and, indeed, re-written almost throughout, besides being considerably enlarged, though the general plan, and, above all, the animating spirit of the book, not to mention the very moderate price, remain unchanged. To all intents and purposes this edition is a new work, and should be in the hands of all botanical teachers, both in esse and in posse, whether or not they already possess the first edition.
