THE proposal to form a biological station at Grantor, which was some time ago brought before the Royal Society in a paper by Mr. Murray of the Challenger Commission, has now taken definite shape. A lease of Granton Quarry for fifteen years has just been granted by the Duke of Buccleuch at a nominal rent, and Mr. Alexander Turbyne, salmon fisher, has been appointed keeper of the station, and will enter on his duties next week. Meantime some preliminary experiments have been made, and cages have been put down at the station, and structural work has been commenced in the way of fencing, building of walls, and putting the banks into proper order for further operations.
