Volume VI. Is the second Of Scotia Reports, the publication of which has been aided by a Government grant, the first instalment of which was paid on September 15th, 1911. It is a further contribution to Antarctic and Atlantic Invertebrate Zoology. Special thanks are again due to those who have voluntarily given their time and who have put their best work into its pages.
The same principle has been followed as in the case Of Volume V., there being no distinction Of nationality made where a zoologist is recognised as being facile princeps in his group. France, Switzerland, New Zealand, Wales, England, and Scotland have all taken part in the compilation of Volume VI. The cost Of publication has again been considerably reduced by the co-operation of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, that has, in most cases, passed the communications through its Transactions, and has thus helped in bearing the primary cost Of setting up type and illustrations. Microscopic Life and Rhizopoda Of Gough Island have been passed through the Proceedings of the Royal Physical Society, and'the expensive Entomostraca monograph of Dr scott has been aided by a grant Of £56 from the Carnegie Trust Of the Universities Of Scotland. At the head Of each monograph the actual dates of publication, communication, and issue appear, also the original source of publication. Original pagination is recorded at the foot Of each page independently Of the pagination Of the Volume.
Most of the communications deal with Antarctic and sub-antarctic species, but some deal with tropical and sub-tropical forms collected on the outward and homeward passages of the Scotia. Some of the communications are supplementary to those in Volume V.
