- As a result of their isolation, the proportion of endemic plants is greater here than in any other region, and the great elevation of the mountains, with the consequent variation in temperature, moisture and
**barometric**pressure, has multiplied the number of species. - The regular tides are hardly perceptible, but, under the influence of
**barometric**pressure and wind, the sea-level occasionally varies as much as ft. - (9) The velocity then should be independent of the
**barometric**pressure, a result confirmed by observation. - The theoretical investigation given above shows that if U is the velocity in air at 1° C. then the velocity U ° at o° C. in the same air is independent of the
**barometric**pressure and that Uo = U /(1 +o o01841), whence U 0 =332 met./sec. - The mean annual
**barometric**height is 29.93 in.; the mean annual moisture, 81%; the mean annual rainfall, 27.99 in.
