PROF. FLOWER, F.R. S., will preside at a meeting which it is proposed to hold on Tuesday next, July 1, in the lecture-room of the Natural History Museum, when Mr. R. Bowdler Sharpe will read a paper on the expediency or otherwise of adopting trinomial nomenclature in zoology. Many British naturalists have been anxious to meet the distinguished American naturalist, Dr. Elliott Coues, who is now on a visit to this country, and to exchange views with him on the subject of nomenclature. Invitations have been sent to a large number of the leading British zoologists, and an interesting discussion is expected.
