Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on 16 Sept 1864

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Rejoices that Darwin is beginning "the book of books", Variation. Suggests that changes in colour of pollen, stigma, and corolla, as Scott reports in his Primula paper, may be related to changes in the insects required for pollination. Supports Gärtner translation by Ray Society. Comments on recent addresses by Lyell [Rep. BAAS 34 (1864): lx–lxxv], Bentham [Proc. Linn. Soc. Lond. 8 (1864): ix–xxiii], and Murchison [Rep. BAAS 34 (1864): 130–6].
