In Mark R. Patterson's report "A mass transfer explanation of metabolic scaling relations in some aquatic invertebrates and algae" (13 Mar., p. 1421), the formula for the Reynolds number two lines above equation 1 should have read, "Re = ρUW/µ." In table 2 (p. 1422), the mass exponents for the flat plate of laminar and turbulent flow should have been 0.75 and 0.90, respectively. In the abstract, the range of exponents given in line 6 should have been 0.31 to 1.00.
