THE editors explain in the preface that the manuscripts of this volume were ready in 1939, but the difficulties caused by the War and the German occupation of the Netherlands delayed printing until this year. The whole volume is now to be published in three parts, the first two dealing with vertebrates and the third with invertebrates, of which this is the first. An appendix, containing the accumulated data of the last seven years, is planned and will be included in the third part.
