TitleReferee's report by George Busk, on a paper 'On the impregnation of the ovum in the amphibia. (Second series, revised.) And on the direct agency of the spermatozoon' by George Newport
Date15 March 1853
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Considers paper too long and repetative. Paper repeats much information from the author's previous paper. New paper actually contradicts an important observation in the previous paper, which does warrant publication.
