Abstract

THE purpose of this letter is to suggest a possible fundamental and common interpretation of results derived by various investigators, including myself, from fleece analyses and from experiments concerned with the effects of diet and abnormal conditions on fleece and fibre characteristics. A recent paper by Swart1 is one account of this kind of experimentation. Work of a different kind and concerning fibre-type arrays is described in a stimulating paper by Dr. Galpin2: it appears to be possible to link together results from such apparently different types of work.
