Nature volume 13, pages 488489 | Download Citation



AT a recent meeting of the Entomological Society of Belgium, M. Capronnier read a paper giving an account of some experiments which he had made bearing on the question as to how public collections of insects may best be exhibited so as to satisfy all the purposes for which they are intended. M. Felix Plateau, at a former meeting, proposed to substitute yellow for colourless glass in lighting rooms containing entomological collections. In the discussion which followed it was suggested that experiments should be made by submitting insects to the influence of glasses of various colours. M. Capronnier was entrusted with carrying out these experiments, and the paper referred to contains his report.
