Accesssory Chapters for Metamorphosis (The Mystery of Metamorphosis)
Metamorphosis was written for an intelligent lay reader. But perhaps inevitably, during his researches, Dr Ryan covered a great deal of ground, some of it a little technical for a non-scientific reader. In particular he wrote two entire chapters for a more scientific reader that could not be included in the printed book. But these chapters are enclosed here as a courtesy to his more scientifically minded readers and are available for free download. Please not that these have not been professionally edited.
