Lectures on the Inorganic Nutrition of Plants

Nature volume 154, page 624 (18 November 1944) | Download Citation



THE present volume embodies the texts of seven lectures, five of which were originally delivered at Harvard University under the Prather Lectureship. It is fortunate that these lectures have been printed, for this is undoubtedly a valuable contribution to the literature of the subject. It carries, of course, the limitation of the form of presentation. Prof. Hoagland explains in the preface that "this small volume cannot have any of the characteristics of a monograph or a text"—and such it has not. But it does provide a discursive survey of a field of investigation in which cohesion is frequently obscured by the rich variety of topics that the subject is commonly held to embrace, and in which, therefore, such a survey is particularly valuable.
