THE COTTON PLANT IN EGYPT. Studies in Physiology and Genetics. Originally published in 1912. PREFACE THIS book has been written with the purpose of abstracting the results of a series of researches made upon cotton plants in Egypt, which investigations, though diverse, were connected by the desire to know all that could be learned about the plant itself. Portions of these inquiries have appeared in various journals, but most of the material here utilised has not yet been published. Where it may appear to the reader that a conclusion necessitates much fuller data than is placed before him, I can only ask his clemency until such time as a fuller monograph shall be written. Primarily, I have written for those few Economic Botanists who are more botanical than economic, but I have found so much genuine interest displayed by the pure botanist, and by the pure economist, as well as by the cotton spinner and the irrigation engineer, that in the hope of giving them some explanation of the relation between my inquiries and their interests, I have written with divided attention.
