A Textbook of Plant Physiology


    THIS book has been translated into English from the Russian. It is a pity that such a step should have proved necessary, for, in view of the relatively large number of universally well-known plant physiologists in Great Britain, we should prefer to see such a text-book written for our own universities, although it must be granted that it is difficult to conceive of an average syllabus for the subject, at present. We have our own familiar books, useful, however, only to the research worker for reference, and too exhaustive to be of any value even to the honours student. This probably leads to the state of affairs in the botany schools of British universities, where the student specialises at far too early a stage.
