Nor does there seem any reason why it should not be the dominant forest of the Southern Islands. We have here possibly one of those cases where a very slight difference in adaptation to environment, not to be estimated in the present state of knowledge, has led to one formation becoming dominant and another remaining stationary in a limited area; or, what is perhaps likely here, a former primeval forest adapted to slightly different conditions has been ousted by a newer formation as the conditions changed. Viewed from the sea, to quote from my note-book, Ewing Island has a decidedly attractive appearance. This is owing to the fine natural shrubbery of Olearia lyalli which fringes the shore, its huge leaves exposing their silvery undersurface as blown by the frequent wind, and contrasting finely with the green of the upper surface. Alternating with the Olearia are pale-green clumps of Veronica elliptica, while in front of it are in places dense tall tussocks of some species of grass, more than 15m. in height, with trunks similar to those of the niggerhead. In front of the tussock again is a rather dense growth of the bright-green grass Poa foliosa. Near the depot the beach is stony, consisting in part of boulders strewn with seaweeds and in part of solid rock worn down to sea-level, backed up by low rocky faces dripping with water, and their summits crowned with Veronica or Olearia. The individual trees of the formation are some 61m. to 91m. tall, some being erect, while others have the lower part of the trunk prostrate. Such trunks are 50 cm. in diameter.

Now, though probably the man employed to bring out the birds gave the gentleman referred to the erroneous information regarding the bird s vocal powers and harmlessness, a little inquiry as to its habits and repute in the Old Country would have made the society hesitate before turning loose such a well-known enemy of the seed-grower. One result of such mistakes has been to render the acclimatisation societies timid of introducing anything that could be called a small bird, as the rabbit has made them afraid of importing anything that will eat grass. These societies have now pretty well become mere piscicultural societies, which make occasional spasmodic efforts to introduce something to shoot in the way of game birds. I do not desire to underrate the valuable work they have done in stocking our rivers with splendid fish, and thus adding an additional attraction to life in this colony; but while they did these things they ought not to have left other work undone which would have been more within the scope of their functions than keeping up a supply of fish for the anglers hooks. Their work should have ended when the trout were successfully established, and had they left the restocking of the rivers to anglers associations they might have had leisure to devote more of their energies to acclimatisation proper. Of course, the answer is that their main source of revenue is from the fishing licenses, and that without this income they would hardly be able to exist, so I suppose we must accept the situation and be thankful for the good work that they have done.

Between the tussock and the actual sea-shore is a zone of Poa foliosa. Probably in this formation are included two quite distinct from one another, a grass-tussock and a Carex bog, but the time was too limited to do more than take the above brief notes. A very similar formation seems to be present on Enderby Island, but I have no details, except such as are shown in a photograph, from which it is evident that the tussocks there are of great size. All that part of Enderby Island fully exposed to the wind is occupied by a tussock formation. 5. Pleurophyllum Meadow. Beyond learning that a certain number of most striking and beautiful herbaceous plants grow in company with one another there, there is little to be found in the writings of those botanists who treat of the Southern Islands, as to the extent, limits, altitude, or edapbic conditions of the plantformation which these plants constitute, or whether, indeed, such plants do form a distinct society. From the writings of Sir Joseph Hooker it seems clear that at the northern end of Auckland Island--that part alone of the group where his botanical explorations were made--a considerable altitude must be reached before the above-mentioned striking plants are encountered in any number, while he distinctly points out that on Campbell Island, owing to their occurrence at a lower altitude, they form a more striking feature of the landscape. Thus, Hooker writes, Beyond the wooded region some of the same plants the forest trees in a dwarf state mingled with others compose a broad shrubby belt, which ascends the hills to an altitude of 800 ft. or 900 ft., gradually opening out i.

A very similar formation seems to be present on Enderby Island, but I have no details, except such as are shown in a photograph, from which it is evident that the tussocks there are of great size. All that part of Enderby Island fully exposed to the wind is occupied by a tussock formation. 5. Pleurophyllum Meadow. Beyond learning that a certain number of most striking and beautiful herbaceous plants grow in company with one another there, there is little to be found in the writings of those botanists who treat of the Southern Islands, as to the extent, limits, altitude, or edapbic conditions of the plantformation which these plants constitute, or whether, indeed, such plants do form a distinct society. From the writings of Sir Joseph Hooker it seems clear that at the northern end of Auckland Island--that part alone of the group where his botanical explorations were made--a considerable altitude must be reached before the above-mentioned striking plants are encountered in any number, while he distinctly points out that on Campbell Island, owing to their occurrence at a lower altitude, they form a more striking feature of the landscape. Thus, Hooker writes, Beyond the wooded region some of the same plants the forest trees in a dwarf state mingled with others compose a broad shrubby belt, which ascends the hills to an altitude of 800 ft. or 900 ft. , gradually opening out i. . .

His presence is, however, responsible for the introduction of the stoats and weasels by the General Government, which must be classed as one of the grave errors in acclimatisation; and also to the introduction of the microbe of chicken cholera, which I, like the Gore farmers, fear will be attended with more evil than good, for it stands to reason that, if it takes root so as to be of service in perceptibly reducing the rabbits, it must also decimate our feathered fauna, and may lead to our old enemies the hairy caterpillar and the Elater grub getting the upper hand again, to say nothing of its perhaps killing off some of the less robust species of our indigenous avifauna. I have referred to the timidity of our societies regarding the introduction of small birds, and some may think that if their numbers be reduced by the chicken cholera good will result; but, unfortunately, it will not discriminate between the green linnet or finch, in whose favour nothing can be said, and our benefactor the starling.

The stupid idea that because some small birds are nocuous all small birds are, instead of being encouraged by our acclimatisation societies, should be combated, and our country population taught better.

Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 Excerpt: . . . morepork often passes a specimen under the impression that it is a leaf. One curious fact may be mentioned: ova of C. virescens are normally pale-yellow when first laid, becoming black after several hours. On several occasions this season black ova were extruded among the pale-coloured ones by freshly emerged females; and, moreover, within the abdomen of several specimens black ova were mixed amongst the others. To observe if possible the manner of emergence from the vertical bore and through the operculum we obtained some pupae. Having cut the wood so as to divide the bore between the operculum and the pupa, on every occasion that the top half was removed the pupa would slide up to investigate the cause of the disturbance in the atmosphere above. On touching a finger held above it the pupa would immediately descend again, apparently satisfied that all was right. This was repeated with different pupae, proving that C. virescens can and does travel up and down its vertical burrow at will during the pupa stage. I now believe the operculum is cut or removed by pressure of the pupal headpiece, and not by aerial pressure, as I was previously inclined to think. One thing is certain, the cover is not a trap-door, in the sense of being hinged, until after emergence of the pupa. EXPLANATION OF PLATE XXVIII. Fig. 1.

These, together with its internal anatomical details, remove it by a well-marked interval from the other genera.
