PROFSSSOR OF BOTANY, UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA; MEMBER OF THE BOTANICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA; VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE ECOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA, ETC. Americans have been behind in this important field, notwithstanding, that American plants harbor some of the most destructive fungi, which, through our careless methods of agriculture and horticulture up to the present, are annually destructive to the extent of millions of dollars.

He finds on such study, that broadly speaking, there are similarities of structure and function in both groups of dependent plants, in fact, he finds that the function of these plants is connected with cell organization and structure and vice versa. The classification of these colorless (chlorophylless) lower plants has been elaborated in recent years with considerable detail by various authors, so that the broad fundamental facts both of taxonomy and phylogeny are known fairly well, but much remains to be done along the classificatory lines, especially, since the life histories of many of the bacteria and fungi are incompletely known. These spores bore their way through the chitinous covering of a healthy fly by means of a germ tube and the MOULD FUNGI 105 hyphae which enter the body of the fly bud like yeast cells, which are carried to all parts of the insect's body. Entomophthora sph(trosperma has a richly branched nutritive mycelium, which grows through the body of insects.

The repair of wounds will be discussed with the consideration of the pathologic anatomy of plants, which will form a separate chapter of this treatise. The ploughing, discing, harrowing and cultivation of the soil frequently abrade roots, break them off, or seriously wound them.
Google Book Search helps readers discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. This lack is being rapidly remedied and the appearance of text-books by Duggar, Stevens, Hall and Stevens, Mel T. Smith, and others, augurs well for the future of this line of literary and scientific labor.

With this clearly in view, the mycologist finds that he has to deal with three distinct classes of chlorophylless plants, namely: Class Myxomycetes (slime moulds). It may be many years before a generally acceptable nomenclature and classifi- cation will be an accomplished fact. After the death of the host, the hyphae break through the surface in connected strands part of which attach the larva, or insect's dead body, to the substratum and part form a thick white mantle over the surface. The conidiospores are elongated ellipsoidal, 5 to 8/i broad by 15 to 26/i long. The resting spores produced as azy* gospores are spheric and 20 to 35/4 broad with a smooth yellow wall.

Limbs are broken off and bark removed by farm implements.
Do not assume that just because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries. — Histology and Chemistry of Fungi 52 Histology; Cell Contents; Colors; Physiology; Enzymes; Classification of Enzymes in Fungi; Chemotaxis. — General Physiology of Fungi 61 Influence of Light; Luminosity; Liberation of Spores. Sexual reproduction is by the conjugation of two gametes dissimilar in size, heterogamic and thus these fungi connect the ZYGOMYCETALES with the OOMYCETALES where oogamous reproduction is displayed. The abrasion of a tree by the branch of a neighboring tree rubbing against it or the cutting of large lateral roots in laying curb- stones must be classed as wound phenomena.
The keys are given with the anticipation that they will prove useful to the student and teacher who desire exercises in the classification of the fungi: The illustrations have been chosen with care, and credit is given in all cases for those borrowed from other books and monographs. Then, too, the author has found it convenient to replace the name of a family, or order, as given by Engler for one used by Wettstein, or some other author, where such replacement is recommended by American usage, or where etymolog- ically the name is more suggestive of the character of the group, and, therefore, best for the use of students who do not expect to follow out the intricacies of any system of classification. If we look for such an ancestral form among the algae, we find that it must have been related to Vou- cheria, if not identic with that filamentous siphonaceous green alga with reproductive organs, as oogonia and antheridia. such as the beech, or the removal of sheets of birch bark, opens up wounds of vari- ous menace to the health of the tree. Maintaining the low power consumption of 2.5W, Flatprop EQP is now capable of delivering 186 litres per minute of oxygen at an inlet pressure of 2.0 Bar.Frictionless operation ensures the same unrivalled accuracy and repeatability with the minimal hysteresis that medical device manufacturers have come to rely on.It is conceded on all sides at present that fertility is due not alone to the chemical character of the soil, but also to other conditions which are quite as influential, such as, the physical state, the bacterial and fungous flora and the presence or absence of toxic substances. A process is sent into the oogonium from the antheridium and a single male nucleus passes into the oogo- nium. Therefore, all generic keys are omitted because the introduction of them under each family would increase the size of the book unduly. The hyphae of the mycelium are tubular, branched and unicellular. Wingless individuals then abandon the roots and crawl up the stems to the leaves, where they form galls. A study of the mycologic flora of the soil can only be pursued satisfactorily by those who have been trained in cultural methods. A cell wall is developed about the oospheres and the male and female nuclei unite, while the periplasm is used in the formation of the spore wall (episporium). The swarm spores (zoospores), which are formed much as in Saprolegnia^ have only a single flagellum. Formerly introduced into Europe, it was very destructive to European grape vines until it was found that it could be controlled by grafting the European vine on the roots of American varieties.
