IT is difficult to say of this much-wished-for and long-expected fruit of Dr. Oltmanns's industry more than that it meets all these wishes and hopes. There is one respect in which a fault may be found, the last to be thought of, viz. the arrangement, but it is cured by the provision of an excellent index. Detailed criticism of a work of this size in the pages of NATURE is out of the question, and the present writer confesses that he has attempted such a task several times, but always with the result that his effort not only left no satisfaction to himself, but kept a fear before him that his judgment might easily be misunderstood.

Morphologie und Biologie der Algen.

By Dr. Friedrich Oltmanns. Zweiter Band, Allgemeiner Theil. Pp. vi + 443. (Jena: Gustav Fischer, 1905.) Price 12 marks.
