TitleStiles, Walter: certificate of election to the Royal Society
DescriptionDate stamp on reverse
CitationDistinguished for contributions to plant physiology. In his work on permeability he developed new methods, and his investigation of the equilibria concentrations of salts within and without the cell are of particular importance. He has made valuable contributions to knowledge of the action of cold on tissues, 'The Preservation of Food by Freezing ' (1922) and on 'Diffusion through Gels.' His books on the assimilation of plants (Jorgenson and Stiles), 'Carbon Assimilation' (1917), and on 'Cell Permeability' (1923) exhibit critical powers of a very high order and are of great value in the further development of research work in these fields.
