Abstract

No flora of the world has lately so much occupied the attention of botanists as that which they term xerophytic, the flora of the desert. This, for several reasons. In the first place, all deserts are now more easily accessible. The rush of commercial enterprise has at last penetrated every corner of the globe; even the deserts have been exploited and the way of the naturalist is made plain as never before. In the second place, this very circumstance makes possible now the study of desert-life as a whole, a thing hitherto impossible.
