Description

Sectional Committee: Botany

Not recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Reviewer wouldn't object to the paper's publication in the Transactions but thinks the Proceedings might be more suitable, although it is too lengthy for either. Suggests drastically reducing the paper and the number of illustrations. Refers to Falk's [?] theory of spore distribution. Suggests sending the paper to a physicist to comment on the physical aspects of the paper.

[Not published]
