Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Also includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting times of a few standard plants in the Royal Societies gardens for the month of November 1871.-
The deaths this month were considerably above the average, though no
epidemic disease prevailed. There does not appear anything in the meteorological
phenomena so adverse to health and life to have caused this excess in
the death rate, except excess of ozone and deficiency of sunshine, and great
elastic force of Vapour.
