Soil dug up from a wetland at Barmah Forest, Victoria. Here we are running an experiment to see what plant species have viable seed in the soil, after many years of drought. Some seeds only germinate if they think there’s a flood (hence the soil in the green trays filled with water). (from Dr Lyndsey Vivian @ CSIRO)
