The leaves are of intense green color and have an acrid smell, due to the toxic substances that they contain (the plant is poisonous). Like the other Junipers, it can promote bio groups (group of differently aged plants where the older plant is surrounded by younger ones).

Alethopteris (Alethopteris Serli)

 

This 3D Alethopteris contains three highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages. Alethopteris was the main genus of the famous “seed ferns” which populated the Carboniferous period. It could grow like a shrub or a small tree. The seed ferns featured distinctive fronds whose parts looked more like some of today’s broadleaf leaflets than they look like today’s ferns’ fronds. But mostly, it’s the seed “cones” they used to bear which make them look unique compared to today’s ferns. All seed ferns are long-time extinct.

True mulgaThis 3D True Mulga contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages. Mulga is the Indigenous Australian name for the semi-arid scrub that covers a large part of Australian mainland. The dominant species in the Mulga, which is Acacia aneura, is called True Mulga. True Mulga is a very variable species, that can be found as low shrub or medium sized tree, depending on the growing conditions. It is long lived (200 to 300 years) when undisturbed by fire. It can collect rainfall through the phyllodes and it’s roots can reach deep waters. Differently from Eucalypt Woodland, Mulga has a very limited capability to re-sprout after fire. True Mulga is a valuable fodder source for Australia’s pastoral industry.
