Стр. 167 - That very law* which moulds a tear, And bids it trickle from its source, That law preserves the earth a sphere, And guides the planets in their course.
Стр. 160 - ... impossibility that distinct organic tissues may be found in the Laurentian graphite, if formed from land-plants, more especially if any plants existed at that time having true woody or vascular tissues ; but it cannot with certainty be affirmed that such tissues have been found. It is possible, however, that in the Laurentian period the vegetation of the land may have consisted wholly of cellular plants, as, for example, mosses and lichens ; and if so, there would be comparatively little hope...
Стр. 427 - ... or drinking-cups, and other relics, which visiters were in the habit of purchasing. Happily, further depredations have been prevented by means of an iron rail, which now surrounds the sacred spot ; and this venerable Yew, which, in all probability, was a flourishing tree at the commencement of the Christian era, may yet survive for centuries to come.
Стр. xv - Although convenience obliges this rope to be sufficiently high to allow of passage beneath, it should, to accord with its symbolic meaning, debar all bad and unclean things from crossing the threshold. In the centre of the arch thus formed of pines, bamboos, and rope, is a group of several objects. The most conspicuous is...
Стр. lxi - ... indeed, which offers a morphological problem of considerable difficulty, and which probably can be effectually solved only by developmental study. The peculiarity consists in the constant occurrence of a solitary flower springing somewhere from the internode below the raceme, either about half-way down towards, or almost close to, the level of the leaf below. So far as observed, the solitary flower is never quite so low as the level of the lower leaf.
Стр. 163 - ... moss taken from the stomach of the reindeer, where it is supposed to have undergone some change fitting it for second-hand consumption.
Стр. 160 - Laurentian of Canada, are of vegetable origin, and possibly in part produced by land plants, as yet altogether unknown to us. If the Palaeozoic was the age of Acrogens, the Eozoic may' have been that of Anophytes and Thallophytes. Its plants...
Стр. lxii - ... springs. By such an explanation we can dispense with any cumbrous adhesion-hypothesis such as that indicated above. The peculiarity is that the main axis does not per saltum pass from the condition of a leafy axis to that of an axis of inflorescence, but begins by producing one flower and then developing a foliage-leaf, beyond which the series of flowers is uninterrupted. The " usurping shoot," as above indicated, represents the axillary bud of the foliage-leaf by which the raceme is interrupted.
Стр. 425 - Society for 1769, the Hon. Daines Barrington says, ' I measured the circumference of this Yew tree, and therefore cannot be mistaken when I inform you that it amounted to 52 ft. Nothing scarcely now remains but the outward bark, which hath been separated by the centre of the tree's decaying within these 20 years. What still appears, however, is 34 ft. in circumference.
Стр. cxxvii - History as are more immediately connected with it ; also to the formation in Edinburgh of an Herbarium of Foreign and British Plants, and of a Library and Museum for general consultation and reference. A meeting is held on the second Thursday of every month, from November to July inclusive, for the reading of original papers or translations, abstracts or reviews of Botanical Works, regarding any branch of Botanical knowledge, practical, physiological, or geographical, — and the application of such...
