An Introduction to the Study of Seaweeds. By George Murray

(Macmillan and Co.)—For a severely technical text-book this volume is beautifully illustrated with cute and a few coloured plates. It is one of the excellent series of "Manuals for Students," and provides a very thorough elementary description and analysis of seaweeds. The introduction is particularly good, and the style throughout clear, though technical. The author's name is, of course, a guarantee of accuracy and command of the subject.
