About this book

A reprint of a classical work in the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature series.

Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature were designed to provide concise introductions to a broad range of topics. They were written by experts for the general reader and combined a comprehensive approach to knowledge with an emphasis on accessibility. Plant-Animals by Frederick Keeble was first published in 1910. The volume presents an account of the nature and behaviour of Convoluta roscoffensis and Convoluta paradoxa, two types of marine worm.
