The Physiology of Plants, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from The Physiology of Plants, Vol. 3: A Treatise Upon the Metabolism and Sources of Energy in Plants As in the previous volume a certain condensation has been effected in the present one, in spite of a slight increase in the subject-matter. All additions or interpolations are, however, enclosed in square brackets, except in the sections dealing with tendril-climbers, with protoplasmic streaming, and with the mechanics of water-transport, to which a few explanatory figures have also been added. The appendix gives a summary of the more important literature which has appeared since the issue of the final part of the German edition, and notices of other recent works are interpolated in the foot-notes. In regard to terminology, it has been the aim throughout to avoid the introduction of any new terms into the text of the English edition unless the weightiest reasons existed for their adoption. The present tendency to a redundant and overlapping phraseology in Plant Physiology, if unchecked, will ultimately lead to confusion similar to that existing in Taxonomy before the compilation of the Kew Index. The fact that a worker of the eminence, profundity, and breadth of Charles Darwin added only two or three terms to botanical terminology which could not be understood by reference to a standard English dictionary should make modern workers hesitate to encumber a developing science with more or less temporary pseudo-classical terms of doubtful utility or of none at all. Physieclexis and epitedeioperileipsis would have been poor substitutes for 'Natural Selection' and the 'Survival of the Fittest, ' and the use of such terms would probably have considerably retarded popular acceptance of the Darwinian theory. With the issue of the third and last volume of Professor Pfeffer's monumental work, a new point of departure has been gained by botanical physiology. Only those engaged in research can realize how much labour the preparation of these volumes, with their encyclopaedic compendium of modern literature, must have involved, and the completion of the work at so early a date in spite of a serious and almost fatal illness affords sufficient evidence of the devotion with which the author has pursued the stupendous task set before him to its conclusion. If the results of his labours have lost nothing in assuming their English dress, the task of the translator has been amply fulfilled.
