I am a field botanist and vegetation ecologist working in NSW government. I have been photographing many subjects for many years, but favour landscapes and plants (those mostly in macro). I hope you enjoy having a look around a small proportion of my collection, and don't forget to look at my other Panoramio places - Orkology by GregS and Orkology Vegetation Survey. Cheers Greg

The green is the leaves, each one is bipinnate with the lobes soft (firm) but with hard tips (almost pungent...) This is looking down onto the flowering branch from above the apex. The leaves are individually about 12 to 15cm long (including petiole), alternate, almost helical.

The family is named for Proteus - a shape-shifter.

I would even say: that ARE the Leura Cascades.

We have a USDA website that does accurately reflect the taxonomy changes, in fact it lists every name that plant has ever been called by. It's almost too much information sometimes....

Thanks JohnyChappo. I have updated the name accordingly.



Likewise. We colloquially know them as salt bushes for that reason. The soil in this location has a saline groundwater layer about 3 feet down. It moves a bit (note the irrigated cotton / wheat paddocks nearby), but is typically quite shallow.

In the area I work Border Rivers- Gwydir CMA I think there are 10 species of Atriplex.

Take care


A grasshopper - Australian style. You probably know them as Eastern Grey Kangaroo... ;)
