    THIS little volume, from the patriotic point of view, records the ready and eager devotion of a young life, the self-sacrifice so nobly shared with thousands of other men, including even actual boys. To a scientific journal its appeal is different. Though falling in battle before he was twenty-two, Wilfrid Omer-Cooper had already made his mark as a naturalist by ardour in research, acuteness in observing, and a highly useful facility of expression. Evidence of this zeal and capacity led to his becoming a fellow of the Linnean Society at the earliest possible date, as was the case with Sir William Hooker and his son, Sir Joseph Hooker, though with how different a tenure, one of fewer weeks than they had years.
