TitleReferee's report by Edward Heron-Allen, on a paper 'Foraminifera from the green ammonite beds, lower lias, of Dorset' by W A Macfadyen
DateJune 1940
DescriptionSectional committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. It is a important contribution to current literature on the subject. The author makes clear references to previous work in the subject and when he disagrees with them, he puts his case convincingly. He isn't a 'species-monger' which accounts for the lack of new forms described. For this, the reader will be 'profoundly grateful'. The illustrations are excellent, which is 'high praise under the prevailing conditions'.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1941].
