TitleReferee's report by Albert Charles Seward, on a paper 'Studies on the structure and affinities of cretaceous plants' by Marie Stopes and Kenjiro Fujii
Date31 May 1909
DescriptionSectional committee: Botany and geology

Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. The paper is of 'hurried composition' and 'insufficient acquaintance' with existing papers on the subject. There are too many illustrations which should be made smaller in size. The authors have 'paid little regard to the necessity of economising space and have evidently not realised the cost of production'. There is no mention of the fact that The Royal Society partially funded this research trip to Japan.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1911].
