TitleSecond referee's report by John Bretland Farmer, on a paper 'The relations between certain diatoms & the fission products of a parasitic alga (Chlorochytrium)' by Henry Charlton Bastian
Date19 January 1903
DescriptionSectional Committee: not stated.

In reply to the Assistant Secretary's letter of today's date respecting the author's specimens, he can only say that his examination of the actual specimens serves entirely to confirm the report he has already made on the paper. He has failed to find any good evidence in the specimens in favour of Bastian's views on heterogenesis. No reliance whatever can be placed on results from which extremely obvious sources of error have not been satisfactorily eliminated.

[Not published].
