    This article is translated from the French original (which appeared in the Revue geiiérale des Sciences, 15th December, 1907, pp. 961-967) and published in THE NEW PHYTOLOOIST (by kind permission of M. Olivier, the editor of the Revue géiiérale) at Professor Jaccard's request. The Editor acceded to this request the more readily, inasmuch as the statistical method employed by Professor Jaccard appears worthy of being tested over a wider range of vegetation. With suitable development, these and similar statistical methods promise to form an important means of connecting the study of floristic distribution with that of the determination and distribution of units of vegetation.
