TABLE I.—General Table of Results of section of Distal Pinnules of
Mimosa pudica
.

No. of
Experi-
ment.
Result.
1 Slow and irregular action in the other pinnules of the injured distal pinna; partial
and irregular action in the other distal pinna; no further result.
2 Spreading action in the injured distal pinna; action in its pulvinus, and immediate
action in the primary pulvinus; centrifugal action in the pinnules of the proxi-
mal pinna of that side of the leaf; no further result.
3 Spreading action in the pinnules of the cut distal pinna; action in the other distal
pinna; action in the proximal pinna of the injured side of the leaf; no further
result; no action in the secondary pulvini.
4 Spreading action in the pinnules of the injured distal pinna; action in one
proximal secondary pulvinus; action in the primary pulvinus; no further result.
5 Commencing action in the pinnules of the injured distal pinna; action in the
primary pulvinus; completed centripetal action in the injured pinna; partial
action in the other distal pinna and in the proximal pinna of the injured side;
no further result.
6 Results as in No. 5.
7 Spreading action in the pinnules of the injured distal pinna; commencing action in
the pinnules of the proximal pinna of the injured side of the leaf; action in the
primary pulvinus, and commencing action in the opposite distal pinna; action
of the other proximal pinna; no further result.
8 Results as in No. 7.
9 Partial spread of action along the injured proximal pinna; action in the primary
pulvinus, and commencing action in the distal pinna of the injured side; partial
action in the other distal pinna; no further result.
  The above experiments were carried out on various occasions during the rains .
10 Leaf not yet reached by the sunshine .—Very slow and incomplete action in the cut
pinna, the pinnules of the outer third and those quite at the base acting
imperfectly, whilst an intermediate groups of four pinnules on either side
failed to move; no further result.
