Page 102 – I took in February three tablespoonfuls of mud from three different points, beneath water, on the edge of a little pond : this mud when dried weighed only 6^ ounces; I kept it covered up in my study for six months, pulling up and counting each plant as it grew ; the plants were of many kinds, and were altogether 537 in number; and yet the viscid mud was all contained in a breakfast cup!‎  Darwin
