BOOKS on methods of analysis can be divided into two classes, one of which is the ‘collected methods’ type. Here each chapter or section of the book is devoted to a specific analysis or group of related analyses, and gives the working details of all or nearly all the existing methods. Such books are not only very useful and convenient but also are a necessity for those analysts to whom the original papers in the literature are not easily accessible. It is, however, the other class of book that… 

STUDIES OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF WOODLAND CONDITIONS UNDER DIFFERENT TREES VI. SOIL SODIUM, POTASSIUM AND PHOSPHORUS

This account is concerned with the sodium, potassium and phosphorus contents of soils in the 32 plots at these localities, namely West Tofts, Bedgebury and Abbotswood, which were originally chosen for growth experiments by foresters because of their general uniformity.

Will the Conventional Soil-Plant Analysis Pass into Oblivion? Rapid and Low-Cost Determination Using Spectroscopy

ABSTRACT Is it time for replacing the traditional soil-plant analysis methods by spectroscopy? Traditional analytical methods are subject to significant sources of errors that commonly result in

Soil and Plant Analyses to Diagnose Hop Fields Irregular Growth

In cultivated fields, patches of poorly developed vegetation often appear without a clear indication of what is affecting the growth of the plants. The purpose of this study was to investigate the

and their Management

To identify the disorders created by low or excess quantities of essential macro- and micro-nutrients, several techniques and methods have been specified which are helpful in recognizing and diagnosing the nutrient disorder(s) not only in fruit trees but also of the soil on which these are growing.

Ecological study of soil fungi of an agricultural field in Allahabad

The soil fungi from an agricultural field in Allahabad where sugarcane is being grown for many years, have been isolated from various depths during different seasons and were identified. The

SOIL HETEROGENEITY AND SOIL TESTING1)

    (a) The information obtained from soil testing possesses a relative value, partly because the result of analysis is no more than an estimate of the condition of the soil. The degree of reliability of

    Methods of Sampling the Benthos

    Studies on the plant associations of slopes and screes of the Western Ghats, India

    The present work is the first of its kind in India to study the floristic composition of the rocky associations of the Western ghats of India on a phytosociological basis and to establish four rocky associations and their six allied sub-associations.

    PHOSPHORUS SUPPLY AND GROWTH RATE IN SPECIES OF AGROSTIS L.

    The purpose of this communication is to indicate that the inherently low growth rate of a calcifuge grass, Agrostis setacea, may be a most important factor governing the survival of this plant where rates of phosphorus supply are low.

    An Evaluation of Some Techniques for the Collection and Analysis of Benthic Samples with Special Emphasis on Lotic Waters

    A consideration of a large number of procedures for the collection and analysis of benthic samples, with particular emphasis on stream investigations and the importance of substrate particle size, reveals that only certain techniques are suitable.
