STYLE. Recent issues of the Transactions should be examined so that authors become familiar with its general style. The page size of the Transactions will be 8.5 x 11 inches, and the text will be printed in double columns. Manuscripts should be neatly typewritten on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wide margins and double-spacing throughout. Pages should be numbered consecutively. Extensive quotations in the text should be typed with slightly narrower margins, and should be single-spaced. Words and numerals to appear in italics should be underlined in the typed copy. Acceptable symbols should be used for units of measurement; e.g., see Style Manual For Biological Journals, compiled by the Conference of Biological Editors of the American Institute of Biological Sciences, 2000 P Street, N.W. Washington D.C. 20036.

Title is to be typed in capital letters. Scientific names of organisms in the title should be underlined. The author's name should be typed in capital letters below the title.
