The statistical mechanics of DNA denaturation is studied with the Morse potential. We point out that the results of Peyrard and Bishop do not correctly reflect the statistics relation (y2) ≥ (y)2, at the region of delocalized states, for the DNA interstrand separation y. The correct results are given.
