Leitfaden für das zoologische Praktlkum

Nature volume 85, page 400 (26 January 1911) | Download Citation



IT is a significant fact that no British zoologist has yet thought it worth while to write a text-book of practical zoology on the lines of Prof. Kükenthal's admirable work, which has now reached its fifth edition. The reason is perhaps to be found in the fact that zoology is so very lightly esteemed by those who have the ordering of our educational system. For this no doubt zoologists themselves are largely to blame. The specialisation of original research during the last twenty years has led to the accumulation of an enormous number of facts, which, though valuable and interesting in themselves, are from the educational point of view to a very large extent redundant.
