TitleReferee's report by Arthur George Tansley, on a paper 'A study by statistical methods of the distribution of species in grassland associations' by Geoffrey Emett Blackman
Date3 June 1935
DescriptionSectional committee: Botany

Not recommended for publication. The paper contains 'no satisfactory analysis' and some of his statements are misleading. Most of the paper is inconclusive. Re-writing the paper probably won't fix the problem. The result is worth publishing, but the description is 'diffuse and somewhat confusing'.

[Not published].

Endorsed on verso as received 4 June 1935.
