Abstract

IT will be interesting to zoologists to know that Prof. Weldon recently found very large quantities of Cordylophora lacustris on submerged roots and stems in the Rivers Ant, about Ludham Bridge, and Thurne, at Heigham Bridges, Norfolk. From my own knowledge, I can say that it is very generally met with throughout the whole system of rivers and broads in connection with the Bure. At the places spoken of, a fresh-water tide of from 6 to 18 inches is felt. I think I am safe in saying that a salt tide has but once been known so high up these rivers.
