Nature volume 154, pages 592593 (11 November 1944) | Download Citation



IN November 1939 a colloquium was held in the Laboratories of Bacteriology of Notre Dame University to discuss micrurgy, or microscopic surgery, the cultivation of plants and animals in the absence of bacteria, and the control of aerial cross-infection in hospital wards. The papers which were contributed are now published in an attractive book, profusely illustrated with good photographs and diagrams, with a common index at the end, and generous bibliographies for each contribution.
