General Botany covers certain aspects of general botany, such as morphology, anatomy, and histology. The book discusses the molecular constitution of plants; the structural constitution of the protoplasm, the cell, and the cytoplasm; and the differentiation of the cell. The text also describes the types of organization in plants; the internal and external structure of the stem, the leaf, and the root; and water and salt balance, with regard to the translocation of materials. The energy procurement and the synthetic processes in autotrophic plants; the respiration and energy transformations; and nitrogen metabolism are also considered. The book further tackles heterotrophy; reproduction; heredity; development; and the movement of plants. Botanists, cytologists, plant physiologists, and students taking related courses will find the text invaluable.
