Reference numberRR/15/194
TitleReferee's report by Alexander Macalister, on a paper 'The anatomy of symmetrical double monstrosities in the trout' by James Fairlie Gemmill
DateMarch 1901
DescriptionSectional Committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, in full and without modification and including all the illustrations. Although the literature on the subject is fairly wide and extensive there is not, to his knowledge, any monograph based on so large an amount of material, nor dealing so carefully with the anatomical details of double monsters. The paper is in many respects one of the most suggestive and instructive teratological memoirs he has met with, and it throws light on several vexed questions in vertebrate embryology.
