How to Collect and Dry Flowering Plants and Ferns

Nature volume 100, page 283 (13 December 1917) | Download Citation



THESE practical hints on collecting, drying, and mounting plants will prove of real service to young botanists. The author recognises the improvement in the teaching of botany which has taken place in recent years, especially in secondary schools, and realises the importance of basing instruction, where possible, upon living specimens; but he makes out a good case for the herbarium, and we hope his booklet will meet with the success it deserves.
