Collection and Preservation of Plant Material for Use in the Study of Agriculture

One of 1,872 pamphlets in the series: Farmers' bulletin (United States. Dept. of Agriculture) available on this site.

Description

"The purpose of this bulletin is to suggest methods of collecting, preparing, mounting, and preserving plant specimens of various sorts which can be used by teachers of agriculture. To instructors in agriculture who have had special training along these lines, doubtless many of the suggestions here given will seem superfluous; but there are many teachers who are called upon to teach agriculture who have not had such training, and who will doubtless welcome specific information as to how to prepare the materials needed for illustration and demonstration purposes in the classroom." -- title page
