Transcriber's Notes

In this Plain Text version, Greek cursive characters used in formulae are represented as [alpha], [beta], [gamma], [lambda], [nu], [pi] & [upsilon]. Symbols for male and female are represented as [male] and [female]. In chemical formulae, the "left arrow over right arrow" symbol is represented by "<=>"

Italic typeface has been represented by the use of underscores . Small capital typeface has been represented by the use of ALL CAPITALS.

Superscript characters are indicated by caret and braces, e.g. 10^{ 8} ("ten to the power of minus eight"). Subscript characters are indicated by underscore and braces, e.g. H {2}O.

Uncommon forms for chemical names have been retained where they occur in the text, e.g. "atropin" for "atropine"; "asparagin" for "asparagine", etc. The spellings of "Sidot blend" and "Sidot blende" are used interchangeably in the text.

Some inconsistencies in formatting and punctuation have been retained from the original. "PH" or P {H} (P subscript H) is retained as used in the text for the scale of alkali acidity where the more familiar modern usage is "pH". Molar concentrations are indicated in various ways (lower case m, italic lower case m, small capital M).

Changes to the text have been made only in the case of obvious spelling or type setting errors. These are listed at the end of the book.

EDITORS' ANNOUNCEMENT

The rapid increase of specialization makes it impossible for one author to cover satisfactorily the whole field of modern Biology. This situation, which exists in all the sciences, has induced English authors to issue series of monographs in Biochemistry, Physiology, and Physics. A number of American biologists have decided to provide the same opportunity for the study of Experimental Biology.

Biology, which not long ago was purely descriptive and speculative, has begun to adopt the methods of the exact sciences, recognizing that for permanent progress not only experiments are required but quantitative experiments... Continue reading book >>
