Specialised Plant Tissues

An Erratum to this article was published on 14 May 1927


(1) DR. SCHÜEPP'S own contributions to our understanding of the part played by the plant meristem are a guarantee that this section of the new handbook of plant anatomy is in safe hands. He points out that after a period, from 1870 until1880, when the meristem, and especially the growing point, was the centre of botanical interest, the subject has somewhat fallen into the background, to be brought forward again to-day, to some extent, in the attempt to understand some of the phenomena of graft hybridisation and especially periclinal chimæras. It is interesting, therefore, to see how concepts that were formulated in an earlier period of botanical activity fare when made the basis of treatment in a modern monograph of the subject.
