Referee's report by Francis Darwin, on a paper 'Cultural experiments with 'Biologic Forms' of the Erysiphaceae' by Ernest S Salmon

Reference number: RR/16/101

Date: December 1903

Description

Sectional Committee: Botany

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The results are important and interesting. The paper would be improved by the omission of the author's hypothesis as to how injury alters the susceptibility of a leaf. There is no evidence for the hypotheses, and if retained it should be more briefly and tentatively given.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions B, 1905].

Endorsed on verso as received 21 December 1903.
