Originally published in 1954, this collection of the posthumous papers of the eminent plant physiologist Frederick Frost Blackman includes six papers that were unpublished at the time of his death, all of which address the topic of plant respiration. The data was collected over the course of one year from experiments performed on the effect of oxygen on the respiration of apples, and the text begins with an introduction by the noted botanist George Edward Briggs. This book will be of value to anyone interested in Blackman's work or in the history of botany and plant physiology.Each apple that was investigated was assigned a number and is identified by its roman numeral throughout these papers. These numbers run ... At the end of the record the apple was weighed again, and the loss recorded is expressed in column 6 as the loss per 10 days 0/0 of the initial weight. ... This value serves as starting point for the a#39;air-linea#39; of respiration which figures conspicuously in the records.
