    LEEDS.—With the co-operation of the International Education Board of New York, an exchange of posts for the academic year 1926–27 has been effected between Prof. Olis F. Curtis, professor of plant physiology, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, and Dr. W. H. Pearsall, reader in botany, the University, Leeds. Dr. W. H. Pearsall sailed for America in time for the International Congress of Plant Sciences, which was being held in Ithaca during August, and to which he communicated an account of his investigations of the aquatic flora of the Lake District, England. Prof. Curtis, who arrives in Leeds this month, has published interesting papers in many fields of plant physiology, but is best known for his work upon the channels in which food substances travel through the plant.
