Fate of German Ornithologists


    MRS. MARGARET NICE, the well-known American ornithologist, has heard from Dr. Stresemann that Dr. Konrad Lorenz, one of the pioneers in the study of behaviour, notably in birds, whose probable death was reported in Nature of November 10, 1945, p. 578, is alive. He is a prisoner in Russian hands, un-wounded, and employed as a camp physician. The same letter also contains news of other German ornithologists: Dr. Steinfatt is in Denmark, but will shortly be returning to Germany ; Dr. Meise is alive, but still in Russian hands.
