Date[December 1914]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', with modifications. Suggests edits and omissions to the plates. Considers the paper too long, discursive and in places too much of a summary. Refers to work by Frank Rattray Lillie and Jesse Francis McClendon. Provides criticisms of the experimental methodology.
