These bulletins belong to a series of reports of a growth committee, of which Samuel Brody, A.M., is chairman. They contain detailed mathematical treatments of numerous data and for this reason will probably not be readily appreciated by the average reader. For the specialist trained in higher mathematics they should prove extremely valuable. Paper XI, dealing with the surface area problem, contains a critical analysis of various surface area formulas reported in the literature. As a result of such analysis "it is concluded, on mathematical and biological grounds, that, while it may be more convenient and perhaps
