Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Has examined Leschenaultia and concludes the external viscid surfaces have nothing to do with the stigmatic surface. Agrees with Darwin's style and nectary conclusions; accounts for their form and position in irregular flowers by describing floral development. [Enclosed are some queries by Darwin with answers by Hooker. Gives information on seed setting by Mucuna and an opinion on the abruptness of N. and S. limits of plant ranges.]
