HAVING published an excellent volume on echinoderms in the series “Faune de France” (see NATURE, vol. 107, p. 776, August 18, 1921), Prof. Koehler now undertakes to provide working naturalists with a guide to the echinoderms of Europe, both the littoral species and those that live on the continental plateau, as well as a few of the more interesting forms that have been dredged from greater depths. Since no such work has previously been published, the present one by so dis tinguished an authority will be warmly welcomed. It is to be in two volumes, of which this first one comprises the Asteroidea and Ophiuroidea, which are represented by 65 and 60 species respectively. The work is faunistic and essentially descriptive. Keys abound, and there are nine plates crowded with admirable photographs taken by the author and supplementary to those in the “Faune de France.”
