Growth and Tropic Movements of Plants

Article metrics


ON examining the prolific publications of Sir Jagadis Chunder Bose, concerning various plant physiological phenomena, one is inevitably impressed by the unique style which he adopts in attacking the various problems with which he has dealt. His methods are often stupendous in their departure from orthodoxy (for which, maybe, he is to be congratulated), in experimental accuracy, and in the forethought for possible experimental error. His results, too, have often astounded many of his contemporary workers but their value, unfortunately, is too often uncertain, through his being rather precipitate in drawing his conclusions.
