Report on the papers of Professor Walter Stiles F.R.S. (1886-1966)
|Title:||Report on the papers of Professor Walter Stiles F.R.S. (1886-1966)|
The collection is relatively small; it includes careful notes taken by Stiles at Cambridge 1906-09, especially CSAC 59.3.78/B.1, lectures by Sir Rowland Biffen and Professor H. Marshall Ward. Stiles wrote many books and articles, and the royalty and sales information in CSAC 59.3.78/A.13-CSAC 59.3.78/A.20 is of interest. His regular contributions on 'Recent advances in plant physiology', published in Science Progress 1919-63, based on his own meticulous reading and evaluation of the literature, helped to guide and inform research, especially in permeability, salt absorption, trace elements, and nutrition deficiency in plants.
