Description

Sectional Committee: Botany

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, in full. The paper is a valuable and opportune contribution to the pedigree of the Gymnosperms. In addition to the large mass of new and critical data brought forward the authors have included a welcome and critical epitome of much of the evidence which bears upon the matter. The case for Lycopodean as opposed to the filicentar[?] origin of the Araucarieae is argued with moderation and will be received with much interest. The figures if diffused through the text as the author's intend, will be very convenient.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1906].

Endorsed on verso as received 17 January 1905.
