I shall in this chapter deal with certain anomalies in phototropic curvature, brought about by variation of temperature and by seasonal change; certain organs again are apparently erratic in their phototropic response.
The anomalies referred to above may be explained by taking into consideration the modifying influence of temperature on the excitability, and the conductivity of the organ.
I shall here adduce considerations which will show that the apparent anomalies regarding the response of tendrils to light is due to the variation of transverse conductivity of the organ.
The analysis of the resulting effect, thus rendered possible, casts new light on the phenomena of response, proving that the anomalies which had so long perplexed us, are more apparent than real.
On the inheritance of other anomalies in the extremities see Dr.

Now, as the anomalies of social order and the oppression of individual liberties arise principally from the play of economic contradictions, we have to inquire, in view of the data which we have brought to light: 1.
Anomalies and perturbations in the planets have been over and over again observed; but these, instead of demonstrating any inconstancy on the part of natural law, have invariably been reduced to consequences of that law.
These anomalies are entirely due to the unseen element which mingles with the luminous rays of the electric beam, and indeed constitutes 90 per cent.
These natural phenomena, unintelligently regarded as anomalies and abuses, are the appanage of war in its pristine and proper form.
These anomalies show us how nature is built up and, far from being inexplicable, are hints that tend to make everything clear, when once a verbal and mythical philosophy has been abandoned.
I answered somewhat as follows:--If the first place, on this hypothesis, all the intellectual and moral anomalies of the last theory reappear.

Many of our older cultivated plants are very rich in anomalies of all kinds, and Cyclamen, Fuchsia, Pelargonium and some others are notorious sources of teratologic phenomena.
As far as we can judge peltate anomalies are quite uninjurious, while ascidia are forms which must impede the effect of the light on the leaf, as they conceal quite an important part of the upper surface.
But when plants with two or more quaternate leaves on the same individual are chosen it indicates that it belongs to a definite race, which under suitable conditions may prove to become very rich in the anomalies in question.
The phenomena themselves consist in the production of anomalies and varieties, and as the genetic relation of the latter is often hardly beyond doubt, the anomalies seem to afford the best instances for the study of systematic atavism.
Other species produce such anomalies only from time to time and nothing is known about their hereditary tendency.
In order to prove the accuracy of this conclusion I have tried to injure the anomalies after the expiration of the first six or seven weeks.
In such cases the selection of normal plants is very severe or even absolute, but the anomalies are by no means exterminated.
It is the assertion that characters, which are specific in one case, may be observed to arise asanomalies or as varieties in other instances.

The above list will hopefully give you a few useful examples demonstrating the appropriate usage of "anomalies" in a variety of sentences. We hope that you will now be able to make sentences using this word.
