" 5. He established a relationship between structure and habits, and approaches the con­ception of geographical distribution.

" 6. He saw the need for a general classifi­cation of plants and made some attempt at a system, though he failed to produce one which was in fact workable.

" 7. He perceived a general relation be­tween structure and junction in plants, and thus laid the basis of scientific botany."61
