Botany in relation to sub surface geology Howatson, Charles Henry


Agriculturists have long been interested in the minor element content of trees and lesser plants and of the soils in which they grow. This paper deals with the relation of plants to ore deposits. The investigations indicate that the zinc and copper content of some trees and lesser plants may reflect, to a striking extent, the presence of zinc and copper concentrations in the underlying soils or rock formations.
