TitleReferee's report by Sydney Howard Vines, on a paper 'The ascent of water in trees' by Alfred James Ewart
Date15 November 1904
DescriptionSectional Committee: Botany

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. So far as he can judge, it should be published in full and he does not suggest any modification. All the illustrations accompanying the paper should be reproduced. Though nominally physiological, the paper is essentially physical. The theory of the ascent of water propounded by author is based upon certain physical assumptions that Vines feels unable to criticize adequately. He recommends the paper be published on the condition that it be submitted to a physicist and suggests John Joly of Dublin.
