    INVESTIGATIONS OF RLSTS.


    Norton was examined and the pods were found to be badly affected.
    Moreover, lie stated that the seeds were planted without -4illii'. But
    the writer did not know then, as hlie does now, that this fact would
    probably make little difference, since the naked seeds are comtnionly
    affected(l, often showing actual peridia.
    To test the theory of rust pvrop:g:l Ion above mentioned, experiments
    were instituted on April 22 for growving' plants from rusted seed under
    a 1ell jar. Tnhe seed used bo Iore all stages of thlie Iruist. The experiments
    were in live series: (1) Seteds slielled and disinfected 1) v mercuric
    chlorlid; (2) seeds unshlielled and disinfected: (3) seeds shelledl. but not
    disinlfecte(d; (4) seeds unshelled, no)t disinfected; (5) like series No. 4,
    tbut rusted mainly with aecidium. All were planted in p)ots in a
    greetinhouse and the pots were kept under bell jars. On May L the
    plants I *-,:il to come Ill' up. After about three months, when lite plants
    liad grown to a height of 3 to 5 inc ihes, no rust had appeared oil series
    1 and 2. and oinly one spot on one plant of' series 3. The plants of
    series 4 and 5 were mu1ch rusted, the a,'idium appearing first, fol-
    lowed shortly by utredosoori.
    On April 25, li;- 8, it was attempted to m'"" iiii'ile teleutospores of
    rust from the seeds used in these experiments, in water-drop cultures.
    which resulted in failure. ()n ,Juhine 28,S IS9. :a similar culture of the
    fresh ilredospore's failed to -gerIninatie in two days.
    In .'.. rusted seeds of h/:'lE/ph'hl, liu., sent from Kansas, were
    planted in the greenhouse (of the D)epartment of Agriculture, at Wash-
    ington, I). C. Fromn thliese three plaints grew, whi Ih were kept uider
    a bell jar. Soon one of thliese plants rusted badly, firstt with thlie aeid-
    mul., then a slight aniounit of the iire(dospores, and later the teleuto-
    spores. It should (he remarked here that Euiiplhorbia rust. so far as
    reported. occurs oinly oiln E. unhihld/ iil the vicinity of Washington,
    1)C.(., and the v writer has never vet been aI ie to obtain rusted seeds in
    that i i.' it.
    (O)n IDecemiber 11. '1',;, a third series of xperiimciits was started at
    Washinlgton, I). (. (On that date rusted seeds of E'ltp/wirl/bit Weltl

    lihere recorded make it rather certain that Schweinitz and S:tewardo are
    (correct. So) far as this country is concerned, the writer is convincedd
    tlihat 1'. lamia /b either 1belongs almost entirely to /inacr/i/ 01r does
    not exist at all. So far it has been utterly imlpossibhle, even in a 2 .'ii
    house, to make transfers of the uredo from one to another of the
    nullm(1ero')ls s1ll )ppose(d ho)sts o()f that species, excepl)t amnwg hosts o()f the
    same enuiis." It is, at any rate, pretty certain that the tformis ,.T rriiqrI
    mon Vrnonia. Ileliatlilus. Atiniella. and Aplophappus. which have been
    referred t(o /It 4? a ,m;' at various times, should be ()nisidered (listinet.
    The (cir(cumstan(ces connected wxithi the culture experiments with this
    species vwere in themselves peculiar. Late in thlie autumn of 1S()7 at
    Maihat tan:. Kans., it was (esirevd to obtain fresh material f the i uredo
    fiw ino(wulating various hosts. 1it at that d(late very little else than the
    teleuto) stage c()oulll be found. Finally, in (October ". a small amount
    was found (1n 1 ;T,,l,'Ii/il"l pt,,l, ( r', mixed among a inmu(h larger quani-
    tit v of teleutospores, andl from this material swings were made on(i I.
    jn IS/;i/,'; anmd If. nut.,. On Nov emeT1nr s there resulted one rust lspot
    on the latter host and three on thlie former. The spots were of thlie
    ured() stage, buit the WilI.i'-l ii,,' feature accomIlpanying this culture was
    the appearance tirst ()f sperimo )mia in one of the( spots. This fact
    made it probable that a part of the inlectioin resulted from the televhuto)-
    spors (df thl inoculating material, even at this unutsald season for the
    germination ()of these spores. ()n MIrclh 7. lSis, while stationed at
    tlie 1'niversitv of Nebraska. inowulations of //./;',l. were again
    made with tlie teleutospores only front other pllats of thlie same host,
    froml which inumrous sp'-,rlo,)nlia appeared in eight days. followed
    shortly bv aci(dia, which were fully developed e by Novemlber 1. 1vy
    tliesee results the connection of tlie different stages of tlie rust is pretty
    welI estalislhedi. At the same time it is shown that the ormis onl
    //. /i,/;,,/,;. and I/. ,una., are identical. In all cultures made of
    Ihis ruint bo()th the ur(edosp)ores and teleutosl)ores haive been found to
    g'erilinate easily and p)ro(luce infections readily. Reverse cultures
    with aecidiolspores were not imade.
    lThese experiments were lirst reol)rted( at tle IsmI)) meeting of thlie
    S icty t v f(r 1'lant Morplho)logy and P!hysioilo,_,v. at Baltimore. Since

    INVESTIGATIONS OF RUSTS.


    ait Stillwater and were of the crown rust type. After this date the
    experiments xwvere continued at the State nI iversity v laboratories at
    Linco(ln. Nebr., all host plants then in use 1,inlg. transferred to that
    place. ( )n November 1N tlie crown rust was found, in the uredo stage,
    on Il'/', u mifhn,, *? it a' ()in the State IUniversity farm, and a rusted
    plant was transferred to the greenhouse. ()n ID)eceCminber 11 inoculations
    with the rust were made (on oats and Iryve, resulting in a good infection
    of thlie former inll twelve day s, but with no result ()on the latter. Fur-
    ther inoculations of oats with the Phalaris rust on February 16. I."; 9,
    resulted again in a good infection iin i days.
    NoseciesP of Rhaimus is native near Lincoln, Nebr., but Rlutmn,,, Iaty,, ((ln, is rather comment) at Weeping Water, about 20 miles east of
    Iinc(ln, where it is often badlyv rusted with Ecidium. From that
    place a large amount of the AEc(idium was obtained fresh oni June 1,
    1, I ';s. A water-drop culture of the material, made the next day, gave
    a profuse germination of the spores in twent y-two hours. Inocula-
    tions with i the a-cidios)pores oni oats and /wI( 7/.s c.i,'iiaitmtaa were
    made .June 1 and June 2, r-niltilg in a successful infection of Phalaris
    on June 14 and of oats oni June 18. The oat inoculations were made
    simply on detached portions of the plant preserved with their broken
    ends in water in a (lam1) chamber. As in all other instances, these
    inoculationis were made within the greatest of care to prevent accidental
    infections. The whole series of experiments proves (1) tlihe connection
    of the a'cidial form of Rhamnllilils with the crown rust of oats, and (2) the
    identity (vof thlie latter within the forms on I/t ,,a',w;., ((ai,'(i/(ii,;, and
    lrrhcmdhi/un'at/ i c/ti,,, besides making it p)ro)bable that orchard grass
    imay also support this species.

    SEGREGATION OF HOST PLANTS.
    Tlie almost important economic results of the study v of rusts are likely v
    to be de( rived( tf'rom tlie investigation of tihe relationship of tlie forms onl
    o oonIl' ClIli ol grasses. Such work ias already v been carried oil to some
    extent h v thie writer and partially reported in the bulletinll entitled
    "C('ereal Rusts of t(lie I'nited States." A more detailed account of
    some of this work will he given here. Because bIeaIi IuponI thie same
    question, it seems l)rOl)per to mention also some eXl)perimients with the
    rusts (f Salix and Po()pulus. Probably tlie greatest confusion exists
    (oMnIcerninig the identity of the different form's (on Agrop'ronI and
    Klxi -ius, thin,11.li there is mui'h uncertainty also about those 'occurring
    (on Iro iiis and oilier genera.
    Tle hC expelriments here described were conducted at Stillwater, ( )kla..
    l:,j,:itta:n, IKans., Lilncoln, Nebr., and Washington, I). C., the host
    plants ileiing soiletiiies transferred fro1n one place to another. 01' all
    these lrusts thlie one receive in most attention was the black stem rust
    of Agropvronl and Elyinus.

    INVESTIGATIONS OF RUSTS.


    itself is well known to have extremely narrow leaves. Moreover, the
    SI)ores wXere not germinated when ap)plied, and, being from dried speci-
    Imens,, tilhe incubation period would naturally v be I.,f. lins of
    S. 7i7'!/fijdr,' were inot at the time available. ()n March 1i; a second
    water-drop culture was mIade fromll this dried material,. resultil._, in the
    g'ermillnation of a few spores.
    Teleutospores from herblarium specimens have often been germi-
    nated. buit the writer knows of no other ij.stance of thle germination
    of dried iiuredospolres such spores t.iing able also to infect a different
    lost. These observations and experiments indicate that we have
    here a swtcmd step ill thlie perfection of the uredo stage as a means of
    pri,. .,;i ing the species. T'lie first step. tlie attainment of sufIicien
    hardiness to co(ntinhe alive in thi e green pll lant over winter, hlas just
    been discussed. Even in this case thlie uredo, although quite active,
    at least distplaces thile rest i i, spore, and in a measure performs its part.
    But as the pl'elrennial host becomes more like an annual and the plant
    die's nearly v or litee to thlie ground, as in this particular case of the
    Sporobolus (which is quite different in this respect from the evergreen
    Pwi A ]/'/7.s, for examplee, necessarily, in the absence of teleito-
    spores. the Iured(osp(re iiiust he able to infect after a dormant period.
    Th i'e(b lospore therefore bIecolmes now practically a resti ,,2 sp(ore,
    but retain s thlie appearance and manner of gi'ermillation of the summiner
    spore. Such a modditication in form or function of any slliY', of a
    species to correspond with an unusual I:liiL. of condition of climate
    or of thle host may 1be considered as an id/b It is easily llunderstood how the change (of conditions 1may 1 e so
    severe as to necessitate still further modifications of structure as wl(,lI
    aIs function, simply asa i means of protection. Such a development
    seems to have bieen actu allv read'ced in thle species next discussed,
    which has resulted inl thlie production of a dlist ict spore form. special-
    ized from tlie uredo, leavillng still, howeevxe. ,I true iirredo stage for
