TitleReferee's report by Conrad Hal Waddington, on a paper 'The effects of antero-posterior reversal of lengths of the primitive streak in the chick' by Michael Abercrombie
DescriptionSectional committee: Physiology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. It contains valuable factual material but its significance is unsatisfactory owing to a 'somewhat naive misinterpretation of previous views on the experimental embryology of the chick'. The results are much less revolutionary than the author thinks.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1950].
