Life cycle stages

These are the stages in the life cycle of the plant:

Seedling picture gallery

Below are images of a range of seedlings from the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan Conservation research woodland. We have concentrated on dicotyledon species. Most of the monocotyledon (e.g. grasses) species are difficult to distinguish from each other.

Rootstock picture gallery

Dry conditions are a feature of the Cumberland Plain Woodland environment. Many plants have strongly developed root systems to allow them to persist during drought. Rootstocks include tubers, thickened or fleshy roots and deep taproots. These rootstocks may also allow the plant to resprout after fire.
