The Physico-Chemical Properties of Plant Saps in Relation to Phytogeography

Data on Native Vegetation in its Natural Environment

Author:

J. Arthur Harris

The Physico-Chemical Properties of Plant Saps in Relation to Phytogeography

The book is unique in the wealth of these physico-chemical data which it contains. It should constitute a nucleus about which further compilations of this nature may be built. In such an event these data of Harris should be physiological and reference libraries.

The Physico-Chemical Properties of Plant Saps in Relation to Phytogeography was first published in 1934. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

This book includes data on native vegitation gathered by the noted botanist J. Arthur Harris in the eastern and western United States, the Hawaiian islands, and Jamaica over a period of 18 years. Included more than 12,000 series of determinations of freezing-point depression, specific electrical conductivity, chloride and sulphate content in grams per liter of sap, and occasional determinations of hydrogen ion concentration. A separate index to the data is included for use by those wishing to make ecological studies of plants in particular communities.

J. Arthur Harris was head of the department of botany at the University of Minnesota, and a resident botanist for the Station for Experimental Evolution at the Carnegie Institute of Washington.
