Excerpt from Farther Inquiries Into the Changes Induced on Atmospheric Air, by the Germination of Seeds, the Vegetation of Plants, and the Respiration of Animals
At the close of his former publication, the Author intimated his intention of prosecuting his inquiries, if the public approbation of his labours should be such as to encourage their continuance, and future experience should appear to confirm his views. An interval of four years has now elapsed since the date of his former Work, during which period many important additions have been made to the various branches of research connected with the subjects discussed in this volume; and the new views, which the late discoveries of Mr Davy have introduced into Chemical Science, may also be expected to extend their influence to all its Physiological applications. From these causes, joined to the Author's endeavours to correct some of his former opinions, and to illustrate and improve others, the additions which he now brings forward, have insensibly acquired a size greater than that of his original Work.
