Abstract

Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Includes the leafing, flowering, and fruiting, of a few standard plants, in the Royal Society's Gardens, during May, 1864. In many respects the weather this month was a great improvement upon that of April, and the reduction of infantile mortality thereby effected, was considerable, on the other hand, some of the meteorological phenomena were very inimical to invalids, and the deaths of adults consequently much more numerous, so that the total mortality was still greatly above the May average of the previous seven years.
