At the Dresden hygiene exposition the facts concerning propagation, heredity and race hygiene were collected and so classfied as to be of great value in the study of these subjects, which are now attracting so much attention among scientific students and students of social and economic problems. Over sixty teachers in the schools of Europe andAmerica cooperated in the collection of specimens, illustrations and books. This profusely illustrated catalogue, prepared by Gruber and Rüdin, gives a clear idea of all this material, and is an index to the present state of knowledge in this field. The data are presented in chapters on propagation, variation, selection and mutation, inheritance of acquired characteristics, mendelian law, inheritance in the human race, degeneration, race hygiene and neomalthusianism.
