Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1908 edition. Language: English. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Botanical Features of North American Deserts Botanical science in its technical and applied branches has reached a stage of development in which it has become plainly evident that adequate progress in research in physiology, in comprehensions of life histories, and in formulating the general principles governing the origin, environic relations and distributional movements of plants may be expected only by experimental methods in the field or in actual contact with the types of plants under consideration under normal environmental conditions. In no part of the subject is this so imperative as in the study of the xerophytic and highly specialized forms characteristic of the desert regions of the world, which comprise a total area equal to that of a large continent. The aridity, widely ranging temperatures of soil and air, physical and chemical properties of the soils, conditions of insolation and radio-activity, together with the special forces modifying distribution, furnish a set of conditions not easily duplicated by the regulation of the artificial climates of glass-houses and not adequately represented by preserved material in herbaria and other collections. A European botanist of ability scarcely lays down his work at the end of a life of zeal and industry devoted to the study of the cacti under cultivation in a climate entirely foreign to them, when an examination of these peculiar forms in their native habitats reveals the necessity for a complete repetition of the entire investigation. When the Carnegie Institution of Washington was established, Mr. Frederick V. Coville determined to present to it a plan for a Desert Botanical Laboratory. This long-cherishcd project was an outcome of his work in the Death Valley Expedition, in 1891. A plan was accordingly drawn up by him and presented to the Institution s Advisory Committee in Botany. This committee considered and approved it because it promised results concerning the fundamental processes of protoplasm as important as any in the whole realm of botany. The Board of Trustees of the Institution also gave their approval to it, and appropriated $8,000 for the establishment of such a laboratory and its maintenance for one year. Messrs. Coville and MacDougal were appointed by the Institution as an Advisory Board in relation to the matter. This Board decided to place the Laboratory under the immediate charge of a resident investigator, who should carry on researches under its guidance, and should be responsible to it in his relations to the Institution.
