Date[February 1936]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Suggests revising the paper as at present it is untidily prepared and badly written. Suggests clarifying and revising the reference numbering of the figures and the text. Provides examples of careless spelling and poor sentence structure. Suggests adding justification for the method, or witholding the paper until such justification has appeared in print.
