Insectivorous Plants is a book by British
naturalist and evolutionary theory pioneer Charles Darwin. The book chronicles
Darwin's experiments with various carnivorous plants, in which he carefully
studied their feeding mechanisms. Darwin tried several methods to stimulate the
plants into activating their trap mechanisms, including feeding them meat and
glass, blowing on them and prodding them with hair.
Botany is the scientific study of plants and plant-like organisms. It
helps us understand why plants are so vitally important to the world. There were
two main ideas author attempted to embed here are : one was to put as much
plant-related information as possible into an evolutionary context, and the
other was to explain complicated problems with simple words and metaphors.
This book is designed to furnish classes
in our schools and colleges with a suitable text book of Structural and
Physiological Botany, as well as private students with a convenient introductory
manual, adapted to the present condition of the science.
This book is
the result of several years 1 experience of the authors with the Intermediate
classes. A lot of time is usually wasted in giving instructions and notes to the
students as to the procedure of the day's work. The authors feel that this
humble attempt at systematizing the practical work of Intermediate classes, will
go a long way to remove this difficulty.
This book covers the following topics: Plant Societies, The Plant Body, Seeds and Germination, The Root — The Forms of
Roots, Function and Structure, The Stem — Kinds and Forms, Pruning and General
Structure, Leaves: Form, Position, Structure, Anatomy and Function or Work,
Gleaning edible plants from herbals, botanies, travel books, cultural
histories, and experiments in scientific farming, Edward Lewis Sturtevant
(1842-1898) complied notes for the largest and most accurate work on edible
plants, cultigents, and secondary food sources ever written. 2,897 species with
comments from over 560 ancient and modern sources virtually cover the entire
field. The range is from the oldest known foods, the mallow and asphodel,
through newcomers like the tomato and celery, to wild foods which become
important under certain circumstances.
