The Development of the Tuatara

Article metrics


IN the last number of the “Anatomischer Anzeiger” received in New Zealand, there is a paper by Dr. Schauinsland on the development of the Tuatara, confirming the results obtained by Dr. Dendy. A preliminary account of these results has already been published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society (vol. lxiii. p. 440), to which Schauinsland makes no reference, although they have been reported in NATURE, while the more detailed memoir was accepted by Prof. Lankester for publication in the Quarterly Journal of Microscopical Science, and is, no doubt, by this time in the hands of zoologists.
