About this Item

First Edition in English of Leçons sur les phenomenes de la vie communs aux animaux et aus vegetaux (1st French ed., 1878). xxxv, 288 pp; 45 figs.; plate. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'In all the courses that he taught at the Muséum, Bernard sought to demonstrate the vital unity of all organisms. In contrast to the naturalists, Bernard was interested only in vital manifestations that did not differ from species to species. Encouraged by the general development of cellular theory and by his own research on the nonspecificity of the nutritive processes, he extended his work into plant physiology. In the first volume of his Leçons sur les phénomènes de la vie communs aux animaux et aux végétaux (1878), he went beyond the framework of traditional physiology to treat problems of general biology' (D.S.B. II: 27). Bookseller Inventory # 03910
