Seite 450 - All the interior angles of any rectilineal figure, together with four right angles, are equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides.
Seite 174 - Botany the questions will relate to the elementary parts of Vegetable Morphology, Histology, and Physiology ; and to the principles of a natural system of classification as illustrated by the more important British Natural Orders. Candidates will be required to describe plants in technical language. Questions will not be set on Vegetable Palaeontology or the Geographical Distribution of Plants.
Seite 479 - Dunstan saw to his horror that its body was bloodstained, while the skin appeared to be actually sucked or puckered in spots, and the animal staggered as if from exhaustion. In cutting the vine the twigs curled like living, sinuous fingers about Mr. Dunstan's hand, and it required no slight force to free the member from their clinging grasp, which left the flesh red and blistered.
Seite 243 - ... subsoils containing organic nitrogen, lower organisms may serve the higher plants by taking up or attacking and bringing into a more readily available condition combined nitrogen not otherwise, or only very slowly, available for the higher plants. For example, it is probable that fungi generally derive nitrogen from organic nitrogen ; and in the case of those of fairy rings there can be little doubt that they take up from the soil organic nitrogen which is not available to the meadow plants,...
Seite 118 - Europe, did not their high price, varying from two to 150 dollars, prevent their importation. They are distinguished from all others by consisting only of a single piece, and by their lightness and flexibility. They may be rolled up and put into the pocket without injury. In the rainy season they are apt to get black, but by washing them with soap and water, besmearing them with lime-juice or any other acid, and exposing them to the sun, their whiteness is easily restored.
Seite 230 - It is met with also at a higher elevation, but not so vigorous, and at 5,000 feet it is liable to be injured or killed by frost. 7. Seedlings of Ficus elastica planted in the forks of trees in the forest are very difficult to attend to, and they in consequence often become dry about their roots, which retards their growth if it does...
Seite 242 - Leguminosce ; but whilst few now assume that the higher chlorophyllous plants directly assimilate free nitrogen, it is nevertheless supposed to be brought under contribution in various ways; but especially by being brought into combination under the influence of micro-organisms, or of other low forms, either within the soil itself, or in symbiotic growth with a higher plant. Of all the recent results bearing upon the subject, those of Hellriegel and...
Seite 231 - Assam plantations, and the latter mode of planting has therefore been adopted almost exclusively. They are not planted, however, on the ground in the common way, but on small mounds 3 to 4 feet high of earth, and the cut wood ..and rubbish close at hand, which suits the epiphytal habit of growth of this tree.
Seite 244 - SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION. There is no evidence that the leguminous plant itself assimilates free nitrogen. The evidence at present at command, is in favour of the supposition that the observed gain is due to the fixation of nitrogen in the development of the lower organisms in the root-nodules, and that the nitrogenous compounds produced are taken up and utilised by the leguminous plant.
Seite 281 - Austrian navy received a protective armour of cellulose, and our own new vessels are to be similarly provided. While this armour is to render the effect of shots less disastrous by stopping up leaks, on the other hand, bullets for rifle use are made from paper pulp. Of food products, sugar (glucose), and alcohol can be derived from it, and materials resembling leather, cloth, and silk, have been successfully manufactured from it. An entire hotel has been lately built in Hamburg, Germany, of material...
