I may add that had the tables and graphs been available I might
well have understood the paper better.

I should be glad if you would communicate to Dr Turing the fact that
Dr Pontecorvo, of Glasgow University, is obtaining fungal cultures whose
boundaries are determined by the diffusion of substance including
morphogens produced by other fungi, in the medium. The results in
no way anticipate those of the paper here reviewed, but have some
bearing on it. Pontecorvo would be glad of Dr Turing's help in
interpreting the results.
