Southern Whales and Whaling


    THE Discovery Committee appointed in 1923 as a result of the findings of the Interdepartmental Committee on Research and Development in the Dependencies of the Falkland Islands is now issuing, under the general heading of “Discovery Reports”,* a series of reports by the Committee's scientific staff and others on the investigations being carried out in the southern hemisphere? mainly regarding the scientific aspect of whales and the whaling industry. As in other recent expeditions, the reports are not published in any definite sequence of subject, but as the different stages of the work are completed. The advantages of this procedure are obvious.
