The rich and beautiful vegetation of Tasmania has had
bestowed on its special investigation the talent of a leading phytographer
of this age, Sir Joseph Hooker; and no other island
of the same dimension can boast of the possession of two such
superb volumes on its vegetation as the Flora Tasmanica,
issued at the expense of the Admiralty with some support of
the Local Government.
