Description :
Frederick E. Clements is known as a key figure in the development of plant succession concepts but earlier arguments over the spontaneous generation of plants illustrate the critical relationship between theory and observation. The observations of Thoreau (1860) and Dureau de la Malle (1825) provide good examples of the way in which the theory-observation relationships are contextualized in the prevailing orthodoxies of the time.
