Scoliodon (the Shark of the Indian Seas)

Nature volume 143, page 704 (29 April 1939) | Download Citation



PROF. BAHL has now presented us with seven memoirs, each dealing with an Indian animal typical of some phylum and taught as a type of the same. The taxonomic position of each is shown, its anatomy and such parts of its physiology as are concerned with its habits in life. The classificatory position in relation to the rest of the Elasmobranchii is carefully considered, aided by forty-nine line illustrations, these leading up to the history of the genus Scoliodon and the consideration of the species.
