Abstract

The last two years have been spent in East Australia, and my short residence in Tasmania has pointed out curious relations between the natural history of that part of the Continent and this Island. There can be no doubt that Tasmania unites features in her natural history which is characteristic of distinct provinces in Australia. If we take the eastern half of the Continent, we may divide it into three portions, viz. :The coast region, characterized by a genial humid climate, with a vegetation in the temperate regions which is almost tropical in luxuriance, and generally Asiatic in facies, which is more decided as we proceed northward.
