This paper is a report of statistical studies involving correlations between various growth responses of corn plants and factor data obtained in the immediately vicinity of the growing plants. Weekly growth measurements of the corn plants were obtained and these were correlated with the factor data obtained from recording instruments. 22. The relation of moisture-Thermal conductivity of oats and other grain has received little if any attention. Employing the Stiles apparatus, an attempt has been made to ascertain the specific thermal conductivity of oats, having moisture contents up to maximum absorption. The thermal conductivity of a substance is the amount of heat which will pass per unit of time through unit area of a layer of the substance of unit thickness, the opposite faces of the layer having a temperature difference of one degree. 23. Some meotic-Refinements of the paraffin technique make it possible to demonstrate critical details of meiosis. The process yields figures that are comparable to the results of the smear process. Progressive synapsis during amphitene, and the tetrad structure of the chromosome at strepsiphase can be readily demonstrated.
