|Title||Referee's report by Joseph Reynolds Green, on a paper 'Cyanogenesis in plants. Part II. The great millet, sorghum vulgare' by Wyndham Rowland Dunstan and Thomas A Henry|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Botany|
Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The abstract to him seems sufficient and would need but little elaboration. The work is good and of considerable importance. He does not recommend publication in Philosophical Transactionsas the authors have already published a paper on the same subject in Philosophical Transactions Series B, 1901, which describes the identification of a similar body to the subject of the memoir, occurring in another plant. The results embodied in the present memoir as bearing on the title given, could be set out equally well in a a few sentences, calling attention to the former paper and saying that another instance of the same thing is found in Sorghum. It is undesirable that a series of papers, all with similar results, upon a series of plants, should be published in Philosophical Transactions.
