To Hugo de Vries   [15] August [1878]

Summary

Enjoyed seeing HdeV yesterday.

Following the point mentioned by HdeV, CD has observed the difference in corrugation of primary roots in plants exposed to dry and damp soil.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11881

From Hugo de Vries   24 February 1879

Summary

Did not wish to imply that some leaves are insensitive to light, only that he could not measure their sensitivity. Contraction of roots seems common.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11900

From Hugo de Vries   7 August 1879

Summary

Experiments to determine mechanism of tendril curvature; importance of variations in cell turgidity. Contraction in roots caused by increased turgor.

Thanks for letter.

Comments on growth and movement of plants.

Classmark:  Artis Library (De Vries 6)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12190

From Hugo de Vries   2 September 1879

Summary

Force of turgor is true cause of movement in plants. HdeV hopes to identify the substance which increases the cell’s water-absorbing power.

Classmark:  DAR 180: 23
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12213

To Hugo de Vries   6 September 1879

Summary

Perhaps movement from side to side in plants is caused by the contraction of one side, rather than the expansion of the other.

Sends seeds of Lychnis Githago: he observed the hypocotyledenous stem, not the root, contracting.
