A COMMITTEE of zoologists in India has arranged for the preparation of a series of memoirs on the lines of the well-known memoirs published by the Liverpool Marine Biological Committee. Hitherto students of zoology in India, while dissecting Indian types of the various phyla, have had chiefly to use descriptions based on British representatives of those phyla. The present is the first of the series of memoirs on Indian animal types; others are contemplated on a leech, a starfish, a centipede, a scorpion, an ascidian, a dogfish, a catfish, and a lizard.
The Indian Zoological Memoirs on Indian Animal Types. 1: Pheretima (The Common Indian Earthworm).
By Prof. Karm Narayan Bahl. Pp. iv + 72. (Lucknow: The Methodist Publishing House, 1926.) 1.8 rupees.
