Photosynthesis is one of the
most important reactions on Earth. It is a scientific field that is the topic of
many research groups. This book is aimed at providing the fundamental aspects of
photosynthesis, and the results collected from different research groups.
The objective of this note is to provide
a knowledge of basic botany, teach specific information about economically
important plants, and instill skills in critically researching a topic on an
economically important plant. Topics covered includes: plant morphology and
taxonomy, Plant anatomy and physiology, Plant anatomy, Vegetable plants,
Flowering plants, Spices, Herbs; Essential oils, fragrances, perfumes, Genetics;
plant breeding, cultivars, Cereal grains, Alcoholic beverages, Gordon Biersch
Brewery, Fiber plants,Medicinal plants.
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 structural work
has been supplemented by so much classification as will serve to make clear the
relationships of different groups, and the principles upon which the
classification is based, as well as enable the student to recognize the commoner
types of the different groups as they are met with. The aim of this book is not,
however, merely the identification of plants.
The purpose of this note is to to give the students a general idea
of the principles of the science, rather than a comprehensive survey of the
whole vegetable kingdom. In a short course of this nature it is impossible to
include examples of every group, and therefore those types have been selected
with which it is moat important that the student should become acquainted.
This note covers the
following topics: Growth and Differentiation of the Young Stem, Primary Tissues,
Secondary Growth, Leaf Morphology and Anatomy, Root Anatomy and Morphology,
Water Movement in Xylem, Flower Structure and Ovule Development, Pollen
Development, Plant Hormones and Environmental Clues, The Classification of

When in 1874, the first edition of Fenner's Complete Formulary (then a
small pamphlet) was issued it was the pioneer in a new field of pharmacy, and
furnished the first reliable line of formulas for elixirs and the so-called
Elegant Preparations which were then coming rapidly into use.
