BY the death of Miss Ethel Sargant, which occurred on January 16, after a brief illness, at the age of fifty-four, botanical science has sustained a severe loss. Miss Sargant was-educated at the North London Collegiate School and at Girton College, Cambridge; she took the two parts of the Natural Sciences Tripos in 1884 and 1885. In 1913 she was elected to an honorary fellowship of Girton College. She was a fellow of the Linnean Society, and was the first woman to serve on its council. At the time of her death she was president of the Federation of University Women.
