This issue is a continuation of the section on technical methods and procedures (Lieferung 30). It will be found invaluable by all practical laboratory workers. There is a richly illustrated article on animal experimentation. The chapter on enrichment and concentration methods will be found especially useful. Other chapters deal with rules and precautions to be observed in the laboratory, with water, soil and sewage micro-organisms, and with the collection, preparation and arrangement of museum material. There is a brief chapter on methods and technic for tissue culture by A. Fischer, who has himself made important contributions in this field. The article on the microscopic fauna and flora of water and sewage will seem to most American readers somewhat lacking in reference to American investigations; this is especially unfortunate as much of the important pioneer work was carried out in the United States.
