Excerpt from Vegetation of the Peak District The study of vegetation in the British Isles, begun by the late Robert Smith, is being vigorously prosecuted by the members of the British Vegetation Committee. Already, several vegetation maps and memoirs have been published of parts of the central and northern Pennines, Scotland, Ireland, and Somerset by W.G. Smith, Lewis, Pethybridge, Praeger, Rankin, and myself, in addition to several minor publications by these and other members. Whilst this book was going through the press, Tansley sTypes of British Vegetation appeared, where, for the first time, a sketch of the plant formations and plant associations of the whole of the British Isles is given. Several vegetation maps, of Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Norfolk, north-eastern Yorkshire, Lanarkshire, and other districts, have been finished by various members of the Vegetation Committee, but cannot be published at present owing to lack of funds. The present volume and the accompanying maps owe their publication to the generosity of the Royal Society and the Royal Geographical Society, whom I take the present opportunity of thanking on my own behalf and on that of British phytogeographers and ecologists in general. I fear, however, that, until government recognition is taken of the botanical survey of the country, publication of this kind of work will continue to languish. The present work is the result of a botanical survey of the Peak District of the southern Pennines begun in January, 1903. In preparing the vegetation maps, the Ordnance maps on the scale of six inches to the mile(1: 10560)were used for field work.

Excerpt from Types of British Vegetation: By Members of the General Committee for the Survey and Study of British Vegetation The work Of systematically surveying vegetation and recording the results on vegetation maps was begun in Scotland by the late Robert Smith in the Closing years of last century, and continued by his brother, 1 G. Smith, and various other workers. In 1904 these workers formed a committee, with the somewhat ponderous title of The Central Committee for the Survey and Study Of British Vegetation, to organise and facilitate work on these lines.

Excerpt from Flora Hongkongensis: A Description of the Flowering Plants and Ferns of the Island of Hongkong The little island of Hongkong is situated off the southern coast of China, at the mouth of the Canton river, between lat. 220 9' and 22° 21' N. It consists of a rugged mountain ridge, running from east to west, broken into three or four peaks attaining an elevation of between 1700 and 1800 feet above the level of the sea, and intersected by deep narrow ravines. It is of very irregular outline, cut into deep inlets, especially on the south coast, where the hills occasionally slope down to a broad sandy beach, whilst several of the headlands terminate in perpendicular cliffs. Its greatest length is about eight miles, by a breadth of little more than four, and has an area of rather more than twenty-nine square miles. It is separated from the Opposite hilly, and in some places more elevated, mainland by a strait, variously called cap-syng-moon, or cum-sing-moon, * which in its narrowest part (the lye-moon pass) is only half a mile in breadth, and, opposite to our newly acquired district of Kowloon, expands into a capacious harbour.
