The Liverpool Marine Biology Committee1

S. J. H.


THE issue of the thirty-third annual report of the Liverpool Marine Biology Committee, and, as we are informed, the last of the series, is an opportune moment for the publication of a review of the important work that has been done since the formation of the committee in 1885. This report is not the swan-song of a dying enterprise, but rather the triumphant cry of those who have achieved an initial victory that gives hope for a rapid and continuous advance in the future; and, although the old L.M.B.C. ceases to exist, there is every reason to believe that its work will be carried on with increased efficiency by the newly organised staff of the oceanography department of the University of Liverpool.
