In a previous paper (1) a relation was shown to exist between the respiration of the plant cell and its elongation under the influence of the plant growth hormone. A more extensive investigation of this relation was therefore undertaken with the hope that elongation would exhibit a close correlation with some relatively accessible property of the respiration, for example with the magnitude or the respiratory quotient of the latter. It may be said at once, however, that this was not the case, and that the work reported in the present paper, while revealing several points of interest and defining more clearly the dependence of elongation upon respiration, has not resulted in any explanation of the way in which respiration is essential to growth.
