Their only interest to the biologist exists in what they are practically good for; if there is developed any new mode of thinking or of investigation which will help to solve a problem it is of importance to know about it so that use may be made of it. The same consideration applies in regard to the applications of biometrical theory. To the biologist who is not cultivating this particular field of research the results obtained in it will be of interest only in so far as they appear to make significant contributions, expressible in terms intelligible to any non-mathematically trained person, to the solution of significant problems. There can be no doubt that valuable contributions to biology are being made by workers in biometry. Further, it is believed that this fact would be more generally recognized than is now the case, were the methods and results stated in a terminology less strange and repellent to the average biologist than is the mathematical. In accordance with this belief it will be the aim of these notes to set forth as clearly as may be and in a non-technical way the significant advances in biometrical research. Recent contributions to biometric theory will be considered in the present note. Work in the direction of the application of biometric methods to the solution of concrete biological problems will be discussed in subsequent notes. The degree of trustworthiness of any reasoning from statistical constants of whatever sort must ultimately depend upon the values of the "probable errors" of these constants. The probable error is a measure of the limits of accuracy of the constant to which it applies. A number of recent papers deal with...

The naturalist tradition in American fiction was a product of the tremendous changes wrought in late nineteenth-century America by the development of science and technology and by the intellectual upheavals associated with the ideas of Darwin, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud. This book is an account of naturalism, perhaps the strongest and most influential intellectual tradition or, as Harold Kaplan would argue, mythology to affect modern American literature and culture.Kaplan approaches the naturalist writers through a study of Henry Adams. He sees in Adams the paradigmatic intelligence of his time a prophetic mind, though not a seminal one and a man absorbed with the twin notions of power and order. Adams's major work illustrates the joining of a literary imagination and moral temperament with an almost obsessive response to the science, economic life, and politics of his world. Adams's work exemplifies what Kaplan calls the myth of metapolitics a view of human struggle and fate profoundly dominated by naturalist concepts of power.Kaplan then turns to the fascination that power in its various manifestations material, moral, social, political held for writers such as Dreiser, Norris, Crane, and others. Their dramatic plots, characters, and allegorical images are examined in detail. In wider reference, this book should concern those who are interested in problems of modern ethics and politics in the effort to harmonize concepts of value with images of power and natural order.

Excerpt from The American Naturalist, 1876, Vol. 10: An Illustrated Magazine of Natural History In the nest observed, one young died, but the other was fledged and left it on March 3oth, quite able to make short excursions for food in fif teen days. I had seen fledged young ones about the Eucalyptus trees several days earlier, so that they must hatch in many nests as early as March 1st. Three cold rains occurred during the development of the one I watched. During all the tituc of development both of eggs and young there have been white frosts at night and fresh, piercing cold winds dur ing the day. As with the Nootka Hummers the females perform the task of hatching and feeding the young entirely by themselves, the males dis appearing from the lowlands and gardens after the eggs are laid, and re tiring among the richer flowers of the mountain canons.
