About the Book:

This book is a rich legacy left by Sir Jagadis Chunder Bose, the world famous Indian scientist who was awarded Nobel Prize for his discoveries in the field of science relating to life movements in plants. The book is a product of his untiring efforts and investigations at the Bose Research Institute, Calcutta, founded by him.

The book presents the quest of truth based on experimental investigations. The scientists of the world take his discoveries as incredulous and full of mysticism at first but he illustrates the truth of his discoveries scientifically. One of his instruments, a crescograph, is so sensitive as to record or detecd a minute growth of a plant to a millionth part of a mm, for a period of shorter than a hundredth part of a second.

The present volume is the first series of a long series of investigations on the phenomenon of plant movements. The book is divided into two parts. Parts I deals with Response of Plant Organs and Part II deals with Growth and its Responsive Variations.

The readers have an opportunity of going through the original investigations and experiments conducted by Bose with the help of other scholars and research assistants. Certainly, the book is bound to have a salutory effect on the minds of the future scientists inas much as it will generate a spirit of inquiry and xperimentation, scarifice and devotion in them, the qualities inherent in their Master.
