The work which forms the subject of the present essay was carried out in the Zoological Laboratories of McGill University, during parts of the summer vacations of the years 1903-04. The subject for investigation and the material were given me by Professor MacBride, who suggested that a comparison be made with the developement of Asterina gibbosa to see how far it might bear out his own work on Asterid development.
