A good deal of attention has been devoted to the introduced
plants of Australia and Tasmania, and various lists of those
introductions have been given in different colonial publications.
Dr. Hooker has added a rather extensive catalogue
in his introduction to the Flora of Tasmania, and since then
the subject has been dealt with by Baron von Mueller, Dr.
Woolls, and Mr. F. M. Bailey. But while these essays have
given complete lists, and thus serve as records for distinguishing
hereafter what is indigenous to the country, and what is
not, none have especially dealt with the peculiar and abundant
spread of some plants in certain localities, and not in others.
This is what I propose to consider in the paper which I offer
to the Society.
