Abstract

The swiftly flowing South Esk River, confined to its
narrow bed, in which numerous rock pools have been worn,
the North Esk, a placid stream, subject to tidal influence for
some miles; aud the Tamar River, formed by the junction
of these two, with a 40-miles course to the sea, and a
gradually increasing salinity, offer a specially favourable
habitat for various genera aud species of the Diatomacae,
and it is interesting to note the distribution of the genera

in some cases indifferent to most severe changes in conditious,
in others susceptible to the slightest influences. Thus Actinocyclus Barkleyi I have found at the First Basin,
a mile above the bridge, in fresh water, in company with
Synedra splendens and Nitzchia rigida and Nitzchia viridis.
