|Title||Unpublished paper, 'A study of the phyto-plankton of the Atlantic' by George Murray and Vernon Herbert Blackman|
|Description||The authors record their observations on a year’s work in collecting phyto-plankton along a track from the Channel to Panama carried out by Captains Milner and Rudge, and also during one voyage to Brazil by Captain Tindall. They also give the results of their own observations on living material at sea. The material was obained by the pumping method. One of the objects of their work was to determine, if possible, the nature of the Coccospheres and Rhabdospheres.|
