SOME time ago (NATURE, April 17, 1902, vol. lxv. p. 568) I directed the attention of the readers of NATURE to the international laboratory, the Capanna Regina Margherita, which had been established on the Gnifetti peak of Monte Rosa by Prof. Mosso, of Turin, through the generous aid of the Regina Madre of Italy. Already much valuable work has been done in that laboratory, and if this has been chiefly of a physiological kind, though provision is made in the laboratory for physical and meteorological as well as other investigations, the reason is to be sought partly in the fact that Prof. Mosso is a physiologist, partly in the special interest attaching to the physiological problems presented by living beings at high altitudes.
