A Faunistic Survey


    THE Nottingham Naturalists' Society is to be congratulated on having produced a finely executed survey of the invertebrate fauna of the county. It is part of a survey which was resolved upon when the society completed its fiftieth year, the task being placed in the competent hands of Prof. J. W. Carr. He has been efficiently helped by collectors and by specialists, and it is satisfactory to read that “practically every species recorded has been submitted to and named by a leading authority in the group to which it belongs.” The whole work shows a high standard of carefulness, and it will be of great service to active local naturalists, who have now an authoritative list to which they may add. That there are many additions to be made is plain when we look at the sparseness of the records as regards Nematodes, Rotifers, Leeches, and some other classes.
