TitleReferee's report by Horace Tabberer Brown, on a paper 'Cyanogenesis in plants. Part II. The great millet, sorghum vulgare' by Wyndham Rowland Dunstan and Thomas A Henry
Date1 June 1902
DescriptionSectional Committee: Botany

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, in full. No comments are given regarding illustrations.

The paper is of considerable value, not only in elucidating the contributions of one of the glucoisdes, a class of substance of which they have but little definite knowledge, but also in elucidating the probable role which some of them may play in plant economy. He has referred to the paper of Dunstan and Henry in Philosophical Transactions B, 1901, 515, but cannot see that there has been any duplication of work already published.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1901].
