Originally published in 1915, this textbook provides a comprehensive and readily understandable treatment of botany. Principally aimed at secondary school plant science students and botanists in preparation for examinations, the book assumes prior scientific kwledge and identifies and describes the different types of plant communities and the biology behind how these communities flourish and thrive. The book is divided into six sections: 'The functions of plant organs', 'Form and structure', 'Reproduction', 'The classification of plants', 'Plants in relation to their environment' and 'Seedless plants'. Clearly written, self contained, detailed and replete with illustrations and photographs, this book will serve as an indispensable reference guide for those who are beginners in the subject but also as a trustworthy compendium for students, scholars and specialists, and will be of considerable value to anyone interested in horticulture, phycology and ecology.
