My attention has been called to some fossils in the Museum
of the Society, which are alleged to have been collected close
to the sea-side at Table Cape. They were presented to the
Society by Dr. Milligan, and consist of remains taken, as far
as I can judge, from three different deposits. In perusing
the transactions of your Society, I do not find that an attempt
has yet been made to determine the relations of these beds
to similar deposits in Australia. Neither can I learn that a
classification of the imbedded remains has been attempted.
The following observations on the subject may, therefore, be
of some little value.
|Additional Information:||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.|
