“One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die.”

― Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species

 

After recognizing the successes of ‘Climbing Plants’ and ‘Insectivorous Plants,’ Darwin published a third book on plants; a book that would become exceedingly larger than he anticipated.

“I have written a rather big book on the movements of plants, and I am now just beginning to go over the MS for a second time, which is a horrid bore.” (Darwin)

This book, ‘Power of Movement in Plants,’ focusses primarily on how plants respond to external factors and how these influences affect their growth. Darwin conducts experiments on plants with the effects of gravity and light and how they affect seeds and leaves.
