Scientific Papers in the Smithsonian Report for 1912

    Naturevolume 92page493 (1913) | Download Citation



    THE annual report of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution for the year 1912 has now been issued by the Government Printing Office in Washington. It provides full particulars of the varied activities, the expenditure, and the general condition of the Institution for the year ending June 30, 1912. But, as usual, the most attractive part of the volume, which runs to 780 pages, is the general appendix of 650 pages of contributions by scientific workers of many nationalities. These papers are sometimes translations of important contributions to scientific periodicals in different parts of the world, sometimes lectures or addresses of note, and in other cases original articles.
