Of the several scientific articles contained in this volume two are of especial interest to physicians, namely, the one on heredity by Prof. Dr. W. Johannsen, and the article on the origin and acquisition of human characteristics, by Prof. Dr. Hermann Klaatsch. The article on heredity is particularly valuable, as it gives a complete summary of the work done to date in a very lucid and easily comprehended style. Professor Klaatsch's article deals with the beginning of the human hand, and also constitutes interesting reading.
