Description
Excerpt: My principal reason for undertaking the translation of Dr. Fritz Muller?s admirable work on the Crustacea, entitled ?Fur Darwin,? was that it was still, although published as long ago as 1864, and highly esteemed by the author?s scientific countrymen, absolutely unknown to a great number of English naturalists, including some who have occupied themselves more or less specially with the subjects of which it treats. It possesses a value quite independent of its reference to Darwinism, due to the number of highly interesting and important facts in the natural history and particularly the developmental history of the Crustacea, which its distinguished author, himself an unwearied and original investigator of these matters, has brought together in it. To a considerable section of English naturalists the tone adopted by the author in speaking of one of the greatest of their number will be a source of much gratification.
