Abstract

Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting of a few standard plants in the Royal Society's Gardens during the month of February, 1872. Warm days, cold nights, numerous and gentle sea breezes with plenty of ozone, nearly an average of rain-fall, but mostly precipitated on two days, five days apart, though with atmospheric pressure high and variable, and temperature above the average, was conducive to the health of the community above five years old, the deaths at all ages being considerably less than the average of the previous 15 years.
