PLANT PHYSIOLOGY IN THE U.S.S.R

Abstract

In the Soviet Union research in plant physiology is being carried on vigorously. There is provision for it, not only in the Academy of Sciences and the universities, but also in some of the research institutes attached to commissariats. The following very brief account is incomplete, and should not be regarded as critical ; but it will give some idea of the variety of work going on and the whereabouts of the principal workers. Where possible, references are given to papers in English or with English summaries; but much of the work reported here is unpublished, and I am indebted to many Soviet workers who have discussed their research with me and given me written notes about it.
