Referee's report by Walter Frank Raphael Weldon, on a paper 'On the evolution of the vertebral column of amphibia and amuivta' by Hans Friedrich Gadow

Reference number: RR/12/320

Date: 26 October 1893

Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The paper is a sequel to an earlier one on fishes. Suggests returning the paper to the author for revision. Fuller reference to the figures should be given in the text, and the references to papers is incomplete. Some of the pages of the manuscript appear to be out of order.
