About Reading the Past - Tim Low
In Central Australia rare plants have survived millions of years of drying by hiding on cool south facing cliffs – often these appear in Albert Namatjira’s paintings. Ferns survive in gorges, and on the edge of the Simpson Desert grows waddywood, the rare and sacred tree that has spines left over from when it was chewed by megafauna. These plants tell us about a past that was very different. Biologist and author Tim Low takes us on a journey that will become an important part of his next book.
