The Physiology of Photosynthesis


    LIKE all the monographs from the Bose Research Institute, this book contains an account of new and very ingenious experimental methods, and a discussion of j experimental results, so detached from the general current of plant physiological literature that it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to assimilate the new data into the fabric of the science. Practically all experimental work is carried out upon the water plant Hydrilla verticillata, a most ingenious bubbling method being used to record the rate at which oxygen is released during photosynthesis.
