Vegeto-chemical analyses are instituted for the purpose of ascertaining either quantitatively or qualitatively the proximate and ultimate organic and inorganic constituents of the whole plant, and its several parts. It is requisite in studying the physiology of plants, that equal attention be paid to these three kinds of analysis, for there is a great distinction between the chemistry of inorganic and organic bodies; that in the former case the determination of the proximate principles can be inferred from that of the ultimate constituents, while in the latter case no such rule holds good. Hence these methods of analysis must be conducted separately and distinctly., In the examination of any given plant special attention should be directed to the percentage of inorganic matter, organic matter and water in the different proximate organs, as the root, stem, leaves, &c, separately, and in the whole plant. This gives us not only the percentage of water, dry matter, and inorganic matter, in the whole plant, but also, the percentage of these in the several organs individually.
