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.

Julian Edmund Tenison Woods (15 November 1832 – 7 October 1889) was an English Roman Catholic priest and geologist. In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.
