Abstract

It is not possible to discuss the biological significance of zoochromes without knowing something of their taxonomic distribution, so far as it is known. A detailed survey would be tedious, since it is already clear that nearly all classes of chrome are widely distributed. For the same reason it is unfortunately difficult to make many clear-cut generalisations, and attempts are likely to fall from, as well as between, the two stools. Probably most rewarding is an initial comparison between animal and plant chromes.
