387 ページ - When, therefore, the floral organs are called modified or metamorphosed leaves, it is not to be supposed that a petal has ever actually been a green leaf, and has subsequently assumed a more delicate texture and hue, or that stamens and pistils have previously existed in the state of foliage ; but only that what is fundamentally one and the same organ develops, in the progressive evolution of the plant, under each or any of these various forms. When the individual organ has developed, its destiny...
582 ページ - Passion-flowers, which show the revolving so well in a sultry day, we may see, with wonder, that when a tendril, sweeping horizontally, comes round so that its base nears the parent stem rising above it, it stops short, rises stiffly upright, moves on in this position until it passes by the stem, then rapidly comes down again to the horizontal position, and moves on so until it again approaches and again avoids the impending obstacle ! 29.

442 ページ - With this tentacle she collects the pollen, thrusts it into the stigmatic tube, and having thus fertilized the flower, she consigns a few eggs to the young fruit, the seeds of which her larvae feed on.

Species of Bignonia and some others taken together, afford connecting links between twiners, leaf-climbers, tendril-bearers, and root climbers. Some little time after the stem of Bignonia Tweedyana has twined round an upright stick, and is securely fastened to it by the clasping petioles and tendrils, it emits at the base of its leaves aerial...

Such is the history of the fall of the leaf. We have found that it is not an accidental occurrence, arising simply from the...

472 ページ - Both these natural orders agree in having the calyx adherent to the ovary, and in their fruits being austerely sour before ripening.
