of melanin, and the influence of rootstock and root growth. Major topics covered

In the chapters of this book, on the
identification of trees, the aim has been to bring before the student only such

striking peculiarities. Possible confusion with other trees of similar
appearance is prevented as far as possible through comparisons with trees of
like form or habit.

one knows when herbs of medicinal value were first used and few care to even
venture a guess. In all probability, certain unknown early plants which produced
a feeling of well-being were recognized and ingested regularly by the primates
who preceded man. After the emergence of man, in the early dawn of time, there
