DateNovember 1932
DescriptionSectional committee: Physiology

Recommended for publication in Proceedings, in full. The summary and conclusion should be shortened. The word 'Bovril' should be replaced with 'meat extract', as some meat extracts now contain yeast. 'Marmite' should also be changed to 'yeast extract'. Some of the figured should be omitted.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 1933].
