General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA and possibly elsewhere
Huge trees that have died all along the Murray River due the locks. They need to be flooded, then dry out, to flourish. These along the Marne River are doing well. Hasn't flooded like this for 11 years, so very much needed.
