THLOPHRASTUS
of
Eresus
in
Lesbos,
horn
about
^70
BC,
is
the
author
of
the
most
important
botanic-al
works
that
havesurvived
from
classical
antiquity.
He
was
in
turn
the
student,
collaborator,
and
suc-

ss<
>r
ol'
Aristotle.
Like
his
predecessor
he
\\as
interested
in
all
aspects
of
human
knowledge
and
experience,
especially
natural
science.
His
writings
on
plants
form
a
counterpart
to
Aristotle's
zoologi-
cal
works.
In
the
En^um-
into
Plants
Theophrastus
classifies
and
describes
varieties
covering
trees,
plants
of
particular
regions,
shrubs,
herbaceous
plants,
and
cereals;
in
the
last
of
the
nine
books
he
focuses
on
plant
juices
and
medicinal
properties
of
herbs.
The
Loeb
edition
is
in
two
volumes;
the
second
contains
two
additional
treatises:
On
Odors
and
\\cathcrSigns.
In
De
Causis
Plantarum
Theophrastus
turns
to
plant
physiology.
Books
One
and
Two
are
concerned
with
generation,
sprouting,
llouerina
and
fruiting,
and
the
effects
of
climate.
In
BooksThree
and
Four
Theo-
phrastus
studiescultivation
and
agricul-
tural
methods.
In
Books
Live
and
Six
he
discuses
plant
breeding;
diseases
and
other
cause's
ol
death;
and
distinctive
flavors
and
odors.
Theophrastus'
celebrated
Characters,
