Written by George Washington Carver, Plants as Modified by Man details Carver's views on plant breeding. According to Carver,"Man is simply nature's agent or employee to assist her in her work, hence the more careful and scientific the man is the more valuable his as an aid to nature in carrying out her plans methodically, instead of at random as is the case when left to herself to perform the work." Carver praises the work of noted botanist and horticulturalist Luther Burbank and lists some of his success in the thesis. Carver also expounds upon the plant breeding done at Iowa State College (University), including the work done with plums, geraniums, and the amaryllis.

George Washington Carver received his B.S. in 1894 and his M.S. in 1896 from Iowa State College, now Iowa State University.
