TitleUnpublished paper, 'On transmission of death-excitation in plants' by Jagadis Chunder Bose
DescriptionBose writes: 'I have, in my previous publications, shown that electric response, which characterises the living condition of a plant, is abolished on exposure of the specimen to a temperature of about 60 degrees Celsius. This temperature may, therefore, be regarded as the fatal temperature for most plants.' He presents further experimental observations regarding fatal temperature and death-excitation in plants.
