Description

Sectional committee: Zoology

Not recommended for publication. The referee feels he is 'not enough experienced in the affairs of the Society to give categorical answers to the questions proposed'. The paper is 'extremely protracted in all it's parts and the referee would 'appraise it as a first-class graduation thesis'.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1926].

Endorsed on verso as received 24 February 1925.
