Date16 December 1907
DescriptionProfessor Percy Groom's paper 'Longitudinal symmetry in Phanerogamia' was recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society subject to alteration and abbreviation in line with the referees' remarks. The Committee of Papers has decided that the curves should be replotted and rearranged so as to be suitable for direct photographic reproduction, and the manuscript made fit for press. He gives the cost for printing the revised paper.
