Excerpt from The Exploitation of Plants

During the first term of the present year the subject matter of this volume was delivered in the form of Public Lectures at University College, London, by the several authors. The object of the course was particularly to bring before young botanists, and also such members of the general public as cared to attend, some account of prevailing methods of plant exploitation, and of the field awaiting development in the matter of our great and varied resources of plants from the botanist's point of view. It is of course evident that the chapters in this book touch but a very small part of the field of plant exploitation. At a time like the present, when so many of our experts are serving their country in various ways, this is just what was to be expected; nevertheless, the subjects dealt with are sufficiently representative of the whole to make the lectures worth publishing in book form, so that a wider public may be reached. Signs are not wanting that our neglect in the past adequately to develop our resources is now beginning to be generally recognised, and if this book can help, in however slight a degree, in- the new "push," it will have served its purpose. It is at the desire of the contributors that I have undertaken the pleasant duty of seeing this volume through the press.
