The Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of the Foundation of the Naples Zoological Station

Article metrics


ON April 14 was celebrated, with great ceremony and éclat, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the foundation of the Zoological Station at Naples by Dr. Anton Dohrn. To the general outside public, the eventful day itself was heralded by the appearance in the Bay, just opposite the Zoological Station, of the entire fleet of the Station, drawn up in line, and gaily decked with bunting. This consisted of the two steamers, the Johannes Mütter and the Frank Balfour, and five small fishing-boats. In addition, the Italian Government sent a guard of honour in the shape of a second-class cruiser, the Fieramosca, which remained in attendance all day.
