Overview

Excerpt from A Manual of Botany: Being an Introduction to the Study of the Structure, Physiology, and Classification of Plants

The divisions of geographical and palaeontological Botany are still in an imperfect state, and are undergoing constant changes from the discoveries of naturalists in various parts of the world. All that has been attempted in this volume is to give a very general outline of these subjects, and to call the attention of the student to the points which still require elucidation. In the Appendix will be found a description of the microscope, of its use as an instrument of research in histological Botany, and of the mode of making vegetable preparations. There are also added directions as to the col lecting of plants and the formation of a herbarium, with hints as to alpine travelling, and as to the examination of a country in a botanical point of view. A full glossary of the ordinary botanical terms is likewise given.
