AS already pointed out in the leading article in NATURE of November 7 last (p. 777), the proceedings of the British Commonwealth Scientific Conference were mainly concerned with inter-Tmperial co-operation in supplying bibliographical information on the sciences relating to agriculture. Co-operative research in certain subjects was, however, suggested by various delegations from the countries represented. Sections of the report of the proceedings recently issued (Cmd. 5341. London: H.M. Stationery Office, 1937. Is. 3d. net) deal briefly with such subjects of wide Empire interest as the transport and storage of foodstuffs, the control of insect infestation of stored products, the properties and utilization of wool, the collection and maintenance of plant material for crop improvement, and the control of damage by termites.
