Between 1953 and 1955, I was serving with the Falkland Islands' Dependencies Survey in South Georgia and material was collected from the southern elephant seal, Mirounga leonina. Histological and histochemical examinations are being made of parts of the reproductive tracts and various endocrine organs from fœtal, juvenile and adult seals. Material fixed in acetone for fourteen months and kept within a few degrees of freezing point is still giving strong alkaline phosphatase reactions.
