Human and Other Tails


IN NATURE of February 24 last, p. 845, there appears a report of Prof. Arthur Keith's remarks at the meeting of the Royal Anthropological Institute held on February 8. It may be that the Journal of the institute will contain a more detailed paper on the same subject, and that the fuller paper will somewhat modify the dicta put forward in the report as it appears in NATURE. But in the absence of any further details it seems worth while to note some of the points raised by Prof. Keith which appear open to criticism.
