Prospects for an Indonesian Agar-agar Industry. – An Indonesian agar-agar industry seems possible. Seaweeds containing a sufficient percentage of agar-agar to make them eligible for industrial purposes, are found in suitable quantities in Indonesian waters. Dr J. S. Zaneveld, the recently arrived algologist of the Buitenzorg Herbarium (cf. p. 85), is at present at Batavia occupied in collecting scientific and practical data in view of a future industrial development of these natural resources. Dr Ch.J. Bernard, is Chairman of the new established Union Internationale pour la Protection de la Nature residing at Brussels, Rue Montoyer, 42. We are sure that the fast disappearing autochthonous fauna and vegetation of Indonesia will receive all possible attention.
