British Mites

Nature volume 30, pages 141142 | Download Citation



WE congratulate the Ray Society on this valuable addition to their excellent series of monographs. Mr. Michael indeed modestly asks us to “kindly remember that this book is the record of work done in the scanty leisure of a very busy man,” but though this may add to our gratitude, and serve as an encouragement to others, no one, we think, after reading the book will feel that any excuse or apology was needed. When Mr. Michael commenced his study of this curious family of mites scarcely any species were recorded as British, there were very few of which the whole life-history was known, and Nicolet's was the only work dealing with the anatomy of the family.
