I am in the 10th grade and I am working on a tough topic.  I am trying to
find biographical information on Rudolf Jakob Camerarius, german botanist,
professor @ Tubegin, discovered sexual reproduction in plants in 1694.  I
found some experimental detais in the Natural History of
pollination--book--but I cannot find out any more details.  HELP!!!  I
don't have access to a university Library and my media center person at the
High School can't help either.  Help!  thank You.   Philip Jones
