Referee's report by Adam Sedgwick, on a paper 'The development and morphology of the vascular system in mammals. I. The posterior end of the aorta and the iliac arteris' by Alfred H Young and Arthur Robinson

Reference number: RR/14/110

Date: 04 March 1898

Description

Not recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Finds the paper 'on the whole to be a dull one'. The 'observations relate to rather unimportant matters'. Some of the observations are new, but the advance in knowledge is only slight. The paper is more suited to an anatomical journal.

Subject: Zoology, Physiology
