Abstract

FOR many years past I have endeavoured, without much success, to call attention to the widely-spread influence of waves on the bottoms of shallow seas. To the geologist this action signifies denudation, and accounts, among other things, for the wholesale destruction of marine fauna so often exemplified in the rocks. To the zoologist it signifies a factor in evolution of immeasurable magnitude.
