"Lowson's Textbook of Botany" is intended to serve as a general introduction to the study of the subject, and is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of students: candidates for the General Certificate of Education at Advanced Level (including Special Papers) should find it suitable for their purpose, as also should students in various university and polytechnic courses concernd with plants and plant products. The book has been written with the needs of the student in mind. An attempt has been made to anticipate his difficulties and to present the leading principles of the science as clearly and simply as possible. In the present 15th edition, the book has been further modernized by the conversion of all measurements to S.I. (Systeme International) Units, and the addition to Chapter 21 of a section on ecosystems and environmental pollution. The text is designed to present a stimulating and continuously readable account with only the essential minimum of technical terminology. It incorporates many references to economic problems such as food supplies, the production of antibiotics and herbcides, and the purification of drinking water. The results of actual experiments are frequently used to illustrate the discussion, and without attempting to assume the role of a laboratory manual the book adopts a practical approach. The editors have endeavoured to present not only the known facts of the subject but also the spirit of enquiry in which investigations are undertaken, and have drawn attention to unsolved problems and controversial issues.
