F.W. Went's research on the natural root forming substance
In 1928 Fritz W. Went published his doctorial thesis "Wuchsstoff und Wachstum" Growth-substance and growth. Went's thesis describes the theory of natural substance production and a method, 'bioassay', to determine the substance.

Wuchsstoff und Wachstum (Growth-substance and growth) (1928)
F. W. Went
Original thesis scan with English translation PDF (3.3MB)

This Week's Citation Classics: Went F W. 'Wuchsstoff und Wachstum' (Growth-substance and growth. (1985)
F. W. Went

The first article published identifying the natural root forming substance (IAA, auxins):
Following up with "Wuchsstoff und Wachstum", Went joined Kenneth Thimann at Cal Tech, In 1934 they discovered the natural rooting substance and related chemical compounds, now called 'auxins'.
On the Chemical Nature of the Root Forming Substances (1934)
K. V. Thimann and F. W.Went
