The Millport Marine Station


SINCE the efficiency of such an institution as a biological station is so largely dependent upon the completeness of its library, I do not think any apology need be offered for appealing to those readers of NATURE who are interested in marine biology for assistance in an endeavour to bring together for the use of those working at the Millport Marine Station as complete a collection as may be possible of works having any bearing on the fauna and flora of the European seas. The station already possesses a considerable proportion of the more important monographs, as well as a number of useful pamphlets; but there are still lacking many reference works of importance, and I am sure that copies of some of these will exist among the duplicates in many a naturalist's library. I would also urge the claims of the Millport Station upon the generosity of authors for separate copies of any papers they may publish; and in this connection it should be noted that the council of the association has recently agreed that all material intended for private research shall be supplied absolutely free of charge.
