Página 317 - The Terms of Auxology a1- justly criticised the nomenclature employed in my papers to designate the stages of growth and decline in the individual. They have also proposed in view of the correlations which have been shown to exist between the transformations that occur in the stages of development and decline in the individual and those that characterize the evolution of the group to which it may belong , to designate the study of these correlations by the new tenn »Auxology«.
Página 321 - Schmanke witsch experimente upon Artemia, and the same may be said of the explanations of all experimenters who do not take into account the reactions of the organisms themselves.

The forms are alike, but no one would venture to consider the infant's cartilaginous jaw and that of the old man as similar in structure.

Whether these claims are well founded or not the nomenclature to be...
Página 482 - NATURAL HISTORY SPECIMENS. IT has always been recognized that scientific research is greatly furthered by the exchange of the various objects with which that research is concerned. For the transmission of objects of Natural History from one country to another, the mails have offered a cheap, speedy and reliable means. Heretofore, through the laxity with which the regulations on the subject have been enforced, it has been possible to enter such objects in the mails of the Universal Postal Union as...
