The Origin of Life.


ONE of the most interesting of the recent meetings of the British Association at Dundee was that devoted by the joint sections of Zoology and Botany to the discussion of the problem of the origin of life. It should be remarked that this was not a discussion of the President's address; it was arranged before the subject of the presidential address had been made known. The President (Prof. E. A. Schäfer), who occupied the chair at this meeting, explained at the outset that his address had been written arid printed before he knew that this discussion was to take place.
