Excerpt from Handbook of Plant Dissection
A rich harvest of laboratory manuals has resulted to zoology from the publication of Huxley and Martin's Elementary Biology ten years ago. Although that work embraced both animals and plants with over half the examples from the latter, it has given rise to no similar aid to botanical study till the past year. The increasing laboratory facilities in this country seem to warrant the expectation that an elementary manual like the present work will now be found in many instances to afford welcome assistance to both teacher and pupil.
In 1882 one of the authors of this book drew up an outline of work for a few plants, which was used in the Summer School of Science of the University of Minnesota. Not long afterward the preparation of the present hand-book was actively undertaken by the three authors conjointly, and has since been gradually perfected and tested by repeated use with classes and individual students.
Although the present work is based upon Huxley and Martin's in form and mode of treatment for the laboratory part, it differs in excluding all matters of physiology so far as possible, as the present demands of vegetable physiology will hardly permit harmonious treatment along with a course of dissection.
