Abstract

THE results detailed below are considered to be of sufficient interest to merit early publication. An amplified account will be published in the future, when a description will be given of the species of Rhabditis which was employed. The worms were cultured in an agar broth the osmotic pressure of which was equivalent to that of about 30 mM. sodium chloride.
