Abstract
The idea of regional research organisations is a relatively new conception in the application of science to Colonial problems. The intention is to secure efficiency and economy, both in total number of staff and in expenditure, by having for those Colonies within a given region one group of research workers, instead of a separate group for each Colony. The point is, of course, that for a given region, East Africa for example, many problems in one Colony closely resemble those in an adjoining Colony, and can therefore be studied more profitably on a regional than on a Colony basis; an obvious example is the classification and mapping of East African soil types, whose boundaries bear no relation to frontiers.
