Abstract

The following pages have but slight claims on special scientific consideration. They are merely the results of a short excursion through Tasmania, at a time when the writer sought invigoration from the bracing air and rural tranquillity of the island, and preferred to spend the very few days allotted to his stay rather in the undisturbed highland solitudes than in the pleasures of sociality. He bent his way to the phytologically unexplored ranges of Mount Field, to institute a comparison of their vegetation with that of other alpine rises of Tasmania.
