Title: Temperature as a factor modifying the toxic action of certain chemicals on the germination and development of a few fungi
Author: Brooks, Charles
Date: 1905
Publisher: University of Missouri
Abstract: The purpose of the experiments, the results of which are presented in this paper, was to determine what might be the modifying effect of temperature on the toxic properties of certain chemicals as shown by the effect of these substances on germination and growth in certain fungi. Since chemical processes as well as plant activities are influenced by temperature, it was thought that additional knowledge in regard to the nature of the Physiological Action of poisons might be obtained by comparing their effects at the optimum temperature for germination and growth of the plant with results secured under otherwise similar conditions, but at temperatures below and above that which is most favorable for the development of the particular plant.
