Referee's report and letters by Charles Vernon Boys, on a paper 'Tone perception in gammarus pulex' by Francis Joseph Cole

Reference number: RR/18/23

Date: 01 February 1910

Description

Sectional committee: [Physiology]

First letter does not recommend the paper for publication. The conclusion is 'almost unsuitable' and 'unnecessarily long'. (Sent 1 February 1910).
Form is sent from the Royal Society, as the author disagrees with the referee's opinion. Referee offers further modifications. (Sent 18 February 1910).
Second letter in response to a further letter sent to the referee by the author. Still considers the conclusion incomplete and there needs to be more 'definite proof'. The paper should be condensed into an abstract for the Proceedings. (Sent 3 March 1910).

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 1910].

Endorsed on verso as received 21 February 1910.
