Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. However, the experiments were conducted in his laboratory, and was closely involved with discussions during the experiments, so does not consider himself an unbiased judge of the paper, and as such can only give an informal opinion. Is happy to give an official opinion if the Council are willing.
