Every plant is constrained to carry Out its functions of germination, growth, nutrition, reproduction, &c., between certain limits of temperature, and somewhere between the extremes of these limits each function finds ao optimum temperature at which the working of the living machinery is at its best, and, other things being equal, any great departure from this may induce pathological conditions; and many disasters are due to the failure to provide such suitable temperaturese.g.
In greenhouses where plants requiring very different optimum temperatures and illumination are kept together.
All chlorophyll plants require light, but in very different degrees, as exemplified even in the United Kingdom by the shade-bearing beech and yew contrasted with the light-demanding larch and birch; and as with temperature so with light, every plant and even every organ has its optimum of illumination.
Arabicae et barbarae servitutis medicae jugo, ex professo se Galenicam appellavit et profligato barbarorum exercitu unum totum et solum Galenum, ut optimum artis medicae authorem, in omnibus se sequuturam pollicita est."
The optimum temperature adapted to its growth and extension is 37° C. =98°.
Bottom-Heat.----The " optimum " temperature, or that best suited to promote the general activity of roots, and indeed of all vegetable organs, necessarily varies very much with the nature of the plant, and the circumstances in which it is placed, and is ascertained by practical experience.
The characters employed by experts for determining a species of yeast are the sum of its peculiarities as regards form and size: the shapes, colours, consistency, &c., of the colonies grown on certain definite media; the optimum temperature for spore-formation, and for the development of the "veils"; and the behaviour as regards the various sugars.
Each species has an optimum temperature and many are known to require very special food-media.
At higher temperatures than the optimum, in the presence of weak antiseptics, &c. The virulence of many organisms, however, becomes diminished when they are grown on the ordinary artificial media, and the diminution is sometimes accelerated by passing a current bility.
Consequently, if we know what constitutes good architecture, it seems reasonable to expect all modern architectures to be near optimum.

Three modes of operation and storage, optimum portability, and image storage are critical requirements for the professional photographer.
Thus optimum seizure control, especially where there are convulsive seizures and/or falls, remains a primary goal when considering bone health.
You can achieve optimum performance with recycled paper.
Precision agriculture involves collecting massive amounts of data, more than any human can process, and applying various algorithms, self-teaching in nature, to achieve optimum outcomes.
