|Contribution||Published fungal causation of potato blight.|
|Notes||Said fungus was cause of disease, not effect. Noted that his view was shared by several others (presumably they had not published). Fungal causation of potato blight was still a minority view -- and remained so until espoused by de Bary, 1861-63. See 1845 on same subject. See "Bary" 1861.|
