Abstract

IN relation to the discussion as to the importance to be ascribed to the distribution of certain trees and plants in the determination of geological climates, it may interest Prof. Haughton and Mr. Duncan to know that a specimen of the Australian Araucaria Cunninghami is now growing on one of the slopes of the Marlstone Hills near Belvoir Castle, in North Leicestershire, a position it has occupied for upwards of forty years. It has attained a height of about thirty-five feet. Having survived (without other protection than that afforded by the wooded heights about it) the cold of the winters of 1860 and 1879, its capability to withstand a greater degree of cold than is ever experienced in our southern counties may be with confidence asserted.
