Abstract

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 May, 1871.- The character of the weather during the month was in almost every aspect abnormal. Very high atmospheric pressure, very calm, very mild, very cloudy, little rain, little ozone, little sunshine, little electricity. The deaths were considerably below the average of the previous 14 years, falling principally upon aged and infirm people, nearly one-half of the deaths being at and above 60 years old, the oldest 84. Under 20 the deaths were remarkably few.
