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.
