Abstract

SEPTEMBER 11, 1911.
The general monthly meeting of the society was held at
the Museum in the evening, at 8 o'clock.
Hon. G. H. Butler, a vice-president, occupied the chair.
The following paper was read:—
"The Connection of Swifts with Weather," by Stuart Dove,
F.Z.S.
Mr. Stephens further drew attention to the discovery on
the Australian Alps of a grass, Poa saxicola, which had previously
only been found on Mount Wellington. The discovery was,
therefore, a very interesting one, provided that the grass had been correctly identified.
Professor Flynn exhibited dissections of the reproductive
organs of certain marsupials, and gave a short address on the
manner in which the embryos were borne.
