VOL. 1 of this series was noticed in NATURE of January 6, 1923, p. 6. Of Vols. 2 and 3 which have now appeared, the former deals with the Gamopetalae from Caprifoliaceae to Labiatae, and the latter with the Apetalae from Nyctagineae to Salicinese. The arrangement of the natural families is that of the “Genera Plantarum “except that in the second volume the Plantagineae are inserted after the Plumbagineae, and the Cardiopteridae after the Convolvulacese. In the third volume the Aristolochiaceae and Nepenthaceae are transposed, the Hernandiaceas are separated from the Laurineae and the Opiliaceae are included. The Urticaceae are, however, still retained as one general family.
