    WE regret to announce the sudden death, at his home in Liverpool, of Mr. Andrew Scott, on Dec. 27, at the age of sixty-three years. Mr. Scott had been on the scientific staff of the Lancashire and Western Sea-Fisheries Committee since 1895, and, at the time of his death, was working in the University of Liverpool, mainly on the plankton collections made by the Discovery in the Antarctic Ocean. He had a quite remarkable knowledge of Crustacea, and, with his father, the late Dr.Thomas Scott, had described collections of Cope-poda from all parts of the world. He is survived by his widow and a son and daughter.
