Weed Plates Series 3, Plates 61–90

    Article metrics


    THE third set of Prof. Korsmo's weed plates completes a series of ninety plates which are unequalled by any previous publication anywhere, in the world. They are bold, colourful and easily understood by the most elementary student, but only a trained botanist can appreciate the accuracy of delineation and the skill with which the salient points have been selected. The illustrations of each weed provide an epitome of the life-history from seed to seed. Germination, seedling stages, mature plants, methods of propagation and seed dispersal all find their place.

    By Prof. Dr. E. Korsmo. 84 cm. × 64 cm. With Textbook of 140 pp. (Leipzig: Koehler and Volckmar A. G. and Co.) 22 gold marks.
