Saltbush (Atriplex nummularia Lindl.) is a resilient survivor and defining feature of the semi-arid desert regions of Australia including the Mallee and areas affected by irrigation salinity near the Murray River. This image is part of a series that investigates the botanical legacy of Mallee botanist, Eileen Ramsay, whose pioneering work documented the plants of the region, the traditional lands of the Latji Latji, Ngintait, Nyeri Nyeri and Wergaia peoples.
