TitleReferee's report by John Scott Burdon-Sanderson, on a paper 'On the constitution and mode of formation of "food vacuoles" in infusoria, as illustrated by the history of the processes of digestion in Carchesium polypinum' by Major Greenwood
Date10 January 1894
DescriptionRecommended for publication. The phenomena may have been seen previously, but not sufficiently observed or described. The descriptive part should be published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, along with the figures, as this section was not fully covered in the abstract. The theoretical part of the abstract does not require any addition. The paper as a whole is unsuitable for the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. Criticises the nature of the figures, as 'the bringing together of things which do not belong to each other is undesirable'.
