TABLE XI.—Results of section of Tips of Axes in Mimosa pudica
—continued.

No. of
Experi-
ment.
Result.
27 Regular, centripetal action along the axis so far as traceable.
28 Exudation of a large drop of fluid; pause; action in the third, fourth, fifth, and
sixth leaves from the tip; no action in the first and second; no action in the
seventh; action in the eighth; no action in the ninth; action in the tenth.
29 Exudation; pause; action in the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth leaves below;
action in the ninth and tenth leaves; action in the first leaf; no action in the
seventh and eighth leaves.
30 Exudation; pause; action in the second, third, fourth; fifth, sixth; and seventh
leaves below; action in the first leaf; action in other leaves successively along
the axis so far as, traceable.
31 Action in fourth, fifth, and sixth leaves below.
32 Exudation of a very large drop; pause; centripetal action of all leaves successively
along the course of the axis so far as traceable.
33 Exudation of a large drop; successive centripetal action in the primary pulvini
only of eight leaves below.
35 Exudation; pause; action in third, fourth, fifth, and sixth leaves below; action in
first leaf below; action of several leaves successively at wide intervals along
the axis. The primary pulvini alone acted in some leaves, whilst in others
complete action took place.
36 Exudation; pause; action in third, fourth, fifth, seventh, eighth, and ninth leaves;
action in first leaf; long pause; action in second leaf, The primary pulvinus
alone acted in most of the leaves.
37 Exudation; action of first, second, third, fourth, sixth, eighth; and ninth leaves. The
primary pulvinus alone acted in most cases.
38 Action in fourth leaf below;. action in third leaf; progressive centripetal action
along the course of the axis; long pause; action of first leaf.

   A total of 38 cases, demonstrating the possibility of very extensive centri-
petal propagation under certain conditions, and also showing the frequence with
which the phenomena of movement take place irregularly along the axis.
