Page ii - Memoirs will be presented or exchanged, as the prices have been fixed on such a scale that most of the copies will have to be sold to meet the cost of production. The Memoirs may be obtained at the nett prices stated, from Messrs.
Page v - PREFACE. THE Liverpool Marine Biology Committee was constituted in 1885, with the object of investigating the Fauna and Flora of the Irish Sea. The dredging, trawling, and other collecting expeditions organised by the Committee have been carried on intermittently since that time, and a considerable amount of material, both published and unpublished, has been accumulated. Fourteen Annual Reports of the Committee and five volumes dealing with the " Fauna and Flora
Page viii - As announced in the preface to ASCIDIA, a donation from Mr. FH Gossage of Woolton met the expense of preparing the plates in illustration of the first few Memoirs, and so enabled the Committee to commence the publication of the series sooner than would otherwise have been possible.
Page vi - ... Committee hope in the future to add still further to the records of the Fauna and Flora. But the papers in the present series, started in 1899, are quite distinct from these previous publications in name, in treatment, and in purpose. They are called " LMBC Memoirs," each treats of one type, and they are issued separately as they are ready, and will be obtainable Memoir by Memoir as they appear. It is hoped that such a series of special studies, written by those who are thoroughly familiar with...
Page vi - It is proposed that the forms selected should, as far as possible, be common LMBC (Irish Sea) animals and plants of which no adequate account already exists in the text-books. Probably most of the specialists who have taken part in the LMBC work in the past, will prepare accounts of one or more representatives of their groups. The following have already promised their services, and in many cases the Memoir is already far advanced. The first Memoir appeared...
Page v - Annual Reports of the Committee and five volumes dealing with the " Fauna and Flora " have been issued. At an early stage of the investigations it became evident that a Biological Station or Laboratory on the sea-shore nearer the usual collecting grounds than Liverpool would be a material assistance in the work. Consequently the Committee, in 1887, established the Puffin Island Biological Station on the North Coast of Anglesey, and later on, in 1892, moved to the more commodious and...
Page v - In these twenty-one years' experience of a Biological Station (five years at Puffin Island and sixteen at Port Erin), where College students and young amateurs form a large proportion of the workers, the want has been frequently felt of a series of detailed descriptions of the structure of certain common typical animals and plants, chosen as representatives of their groups, and dealt with by specialists. The same want has probably been felt in other similar institutions and in many College laboratories....
Page vi - The work must necessarily be so when opening up a new district. Some of the workers have published papers on morphological points, or on embryology and observations on life-histories and habits ; but the majority of the papers in the volumes on the " Fauna and Flora of Liverpool Bay " have been, as was intended from the first, occupied with the names and characteristics and distribution of the many different kinds of marine plants and animals in our district. And this faunistic work will still go...
