The “Zoological Record”

Nature volume 49, pages 123124 | Download Citation



IN reference to the letter of Messrs. Pocock and Bather, on the subject of the Zoological Record, in NATURE of November 16, I desire to state that the council of this Society (to which the Zoological Record at present belongs) quite agree with the above-named gentlemen in their wish to render the Zoological Record more complete by combining palæozoology with it. With this view the council some time since addressed the Geological Society, and suggested what in their opinion would be an equitable arrangement for carrying out the plan. This arrangement, however, as will be seen by the copy of the correspondence enclosed herewith, was rejected by the council of the Geological Society. It remains, therefore, for Mr. Bather and such members of the Geological Society as may share his sentiments, to do their best to induce the council of the Geological Society to alter their views upon this question.
