ContributionPublished fungal causation of potato blight.
ReferenceAinsworth
NotesSaid 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.
