Australia's best meteorite craters
For centuries Australia’s succulent plants have been undervalued by botanists, neglected by world encyclopaedias and considered pests by backyard gardeners. But now Attila Kapitany, the authority on Australia’s succulent plants, tells Australian Geographic that it’s about time the record is set straight.
While his admirers have recognised his artistic genius for centuries, a new online exhibition, the very first of its kind, has collated 300 of Ferdinand Bauer’s artworks — from initial sketch to finished product.
