Scope and Contents

Sclater answers Ewart's question about experiments in inbreeding in the Zoological Gardens. He states that, while that no experiments specifically based on inbreeding have been carried out at the Gardens, they are careful to inject new blood into their breeding programmes, to sustain the size, health and reproductive powers of the animals.
