= Bierens de Haan 2258; DSB, p.11ff: "Ingen-Housz is most widely known for his discovery of photosynthesis. (...) the book in which Ingen-Housz reported his results, Experiments Upon Vegetables, advanced the understanding of the phenomenon considerably. He established that only the green parts of a plant can "restore" the air, that they do this only when illuminated by sunlight, ant that the active part of the sun's rediation is in the visible light and not in the heat radiation. In addition he found that platns, like animals, exhibit respiration, that respiration continues day and night, and that all parts of the plant - green as well as non green, flowers and fruit as well as roots - take part in the process".
