This book has three directions of special emphasis: first, to develop the student's reliance on experiments in forming generalizations about his science; second, to depict science as a complex of imperfect approximations derived by the scientific method; and third, to reorganize the subject to make it more nearly representative of modern plant physiology in the laboratory and in the field. This book I have drawn on experimental evidence insofar as possible to illustrate the concepts being discussed. The book is centered about the workings of the growing plant, without organized coverage of biochemistry and nutrition. This assumes a logical pedagogical division of the subject of plant physiology into a section on growth and development and another section on nutrition and metabolism. This is also done with the hope of maintaining an appropriate level of interest in the functions of the living plant, in the face of a current tendency toward preoccupation with grindates, supernates, and simulated life activities in test tubes without sufficiently clear relationship to the growth of the whole plant.
