These annual reports cover the work of the Bureau of Science of the Philippine Islands from August, 1908, to August, 1910. The report for 1908-09 presents the work of the biologic laboratory in the study of various tropical diseases in Manila and the provinces, among them being dysentery, leprosy, cholera and diphtheria; and the investigations of intestinal parasites and certain diseases in animals. The report also contains other matter not directly connected with zoology or medicine. The report for 1909-10 gives account of the further investigations concerning the diseases above mentioned. It has been the custom of the Bureau of Science in the Philippines to send parties of investigators into one of the provinces and study the diseases and parasites indigenous to that region in a rather intensive manner. This has led to important results and the reports of the work are of great interest.
