The Study of Animal Variation


MR. BATESON is to be congratulated on the completion of the first part of his work on variation in animals, which treats of variation in the number and position of organs forming parts of linear or symmetrical series. Variation in the structure of such organs is only partially dealt with, a fuller account being promised in a future volume. The present work may be divided into two parts—one purely descriptive, the other critical. These require separate notice.

Materials for the Study of Variation, treated with especial regard to Discontinuity in the Origin of Species.

By W. Bateson, Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge. (London: Macmillan and Co., 1894.)
