Roadside remnant

Roadside remnant

In the foreground, part of a tiny patch of remnant native vegetation where two roads meet; in the background, crops as far as the eye can see. Although it is only regrowth, notice the extraordinary diversity of the native vegetation. This is typical of the southwest: on a per-hectare basis, it is richer than any other habitat on the continent outside tropical rainforest.
