Thanks CD for Variation.

From his work on insect embryology he sees a great parallelism between insect and vertebrate embryology.

From Anton Dohrn   7 September 1871


Reports on the international support he has obtained for the zoological station [see 7038]. Asks CD whether he will serve on a board of naturalists who would receive an annual report on the station.

Huxley is now convinced by AD’s views on homologies of the nervous system of arthropods, annelids, and vertebrates. Kovalevsky takes the same line but does not go far enough.
