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 November, 1866. Though the Meteorological phenomena this month, were in many respects abnormal, the deaths were nevertheless below the average of the previous nine years' Novembers. The air was pure and the rainfall large, so that in the Zymotic class of diseases there was not a single death recorded. On the other hand, atmospheric pressure underwent frequent and extensive daily perturbations; temperature, also, was considerably below the average, with wide daily ranges. The diseases, therefore, most influenced by the latter phenomena, were more fatal proprotionately to the whole mortality than usual.
