Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Philip Lutley Sclater, 15 February 1901

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/7/2
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.
