|Title||Referee's report by William Bateson, on a paper 'The function of sex' by G Archdall Reid|
|Date||5 October 1905|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Zoology|
The paper is not suitable for the Royal Society. It contains no new observation and he cannot find anything of value in the author's treatment. The author's acquaintance with the various phenomena discussed is evidently of a superficial and hearsay character. This essay belongs to a type which had a certain vogue 30 years ago, but is now rightly discredited.
Endorsed on verso as received 6 October 1905.
