    Article metrics


    THE spring number of the Journal of the Board of Greenkeeping Research (4, No. 14, from the Board's Research Station, St. Ives, Bingley, Yorks, 2s. 6d. net) contains the annual report of the organization, which shows, inter alia,, a very gratifying volume of advisory work. Many suggestions for future work of a practical kind have been made by the Greenkeepers' Advisory Committee, and the report of last year's annual conference is embellished by the full text of Prof. N. M. Comber's address on “The Constitution of Soil”. Mr. R. B. Dawson, director of the Research Station, contributes a short but highly informative article on camomile lawns, and the previous accounts of lawn grasses, of weeds, and of fertilizers, are con tinued. The difficulties of accurate botanical descrip tion are being met by the publication of a glossary of botanical terms. Mr. R. B. Ferro discusses some of the difficulties of field experimentation on the golf course. Two short articles on water installations, a description of the management of a golf course on heavy clay soil, arid a plea for special investigation of bowling green problems, are included in the issue.
