The general science course in most high schools is conspicuous by its lack of plant study. Usually there is a brief study of micro-organisms, but the higher plant is often completely ignored. Why is this? Is it because the subject matter of plant study is of a special nature and is not of general importance? Ts it because plant study is not of interest and cannot be adapted to beginners in high school? Perchance it is because most of our general science textbooks have been written by physicists and chemists.
