LEAVITT'S OUTLINES OF BOTANY

$1.00 With Gray's Field, Forest, and Garden Flora

1.80 For the High School Laboratory and Class Room. By Robert Greenleaf Leavitt, A.M., of The Ames Botanical Laboratory.

Prepared at the request of the Botanical Department of Harvard University. The practical exercises and experiments have been so chosen that they may be performed by schools with even simple apparatus. The instructions for laboratory study are placed in divisions by themselves, preceding the related chapters of descriptive text. This latter follows in the main the sequence of topics in Gray's Lessons in Botany, but the greater part of it is entirely new.

The book combines the best features of the newest methods with that lucidity and definiteness which bave given Dr. Gray's text-books their extraordinary success. It therefore pays special attention to ecology. Morphology and physiology are fully treated. The illustrations number 384, and have been drawn with great care and accuracy. The appendix contains valuable suggestions for the teacher, and the index is very com plete, rendering possible reference to any topic.
