following pages represent in a much extended form the lectures and laboratory
exercises given by the author before his botanic classes at the University of
Pennsylvania, and before public audiences else- where, especially, Farmers'
Institutes with which he has had three years' experience as a lecturer in

of the classroom and from an acquaintance with similar work in other colleges
and universities in America.
