    Following Dr. Einar Naumann's excellent introduction to experimental fresh-water plankton investigations in Vol. 6 of the present work, we are now given treatises on the biology of the moor by Dr. 0. Harnisch (Vol. 7), and on the high-mountain lakes of the Alps by Dr. Otto Pesta (Vol. 8). Both of these are highly interesting, and the student of fresh-water biology will find much to help him, whichever region he wishes to investigate. The plan of the volumes is similar, although naturally differing to a large extent in matter. The first part treats of the geographical and geological features with the chemical constituents of the soil and water, and following this are descriptions of the fauna and flora of these distinctive regions.
