Bloom on leaves and fruit: portfolios, 1873-1881
Scope and Contents
These volumes comprise material relating to Charles Darwin's research on the role of waxy coating, or 'bloom', on leaves and fruit. The research did not result in the publication of a book, although Francis Darwin, who had worked on this research with his father, did later publish an article on their experiments.
Conditions Governing Access
Some material in the Darwin archive is not available because it is unfit for production and access to some very fragile material may only be possible with support from specialist conservation staff. Please see descriptions for further details.
