Among the problems in the life history of the Peronosporales two important and interesting ones have received far less attention than they deserve. These are (1) the interrelation of meteorological conditions and the abundance and development of these fungi (2) the location of centers of seasonal distribution. While these problems have attracted the attention of a number of mycologists, they are of such a nature as to necessitate a series of observations extending over a term of years in a given locality and at the same time to require the cooperation of observers in localities widely separated in space and climate. To be of the greatest efficiency these observations, accompanied by specimens to properly authenticate them, should be communicated to someone who can study and correlate the accumulated data. In this way we may be able to arrive at some more definite conclusions concerning the problems of oospore formation.
