Abstract

The following notes on a few Queensland plants, I am in hopes may not prove uninteresting to some Members of the Society. Some of our trees, &c., are met with far away from what would be supposed their habitat, and not, so far as known, on intermediate country. Others again, which have always been supposed to have been introduced by cultivation are met with at so great a distance from where cultivation is being carried on as to make one think that mode of introduction impossible. Again the soil and situation in which we find a tree growing, are at times so very different that it would lead one to suppose them planted in these situations by the erring hands of man, and not by the unerring hand of nature.
