Professor Robert Hill will explain how 45 million years ago, southern Australia was attached to Antarctica and was covered in diverse and dense tropical rainforest. Through time, the climate has dried, and the rainforests have been replaced by a mosaic of dry-adapted vegetation.
At the start of each meeting a ten minutes presentation on a ‘Butterfly of the Month’ will be given by a BCSA committee member.
