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 December 1871.-
The hot and very dry character of this month, together with the excessive
daily variations of temperature, might have been expected to cause a
death-rate largely above the December average, but the excess was only
trifling, three-fourths of the deaths being above 15 years old, children's
deaths under the age forming an unusually small proportion of the total
deaths, while those above 60 years old were more than one-third of the
whole.
