Note: Changes in temperature and rainfall will have an influence on the distribution and diversity of plant species. Plants that we can grow in our gardens in Melbourne or that make up surrounding bushland will change as the climate shifts. In particular, increased heat and drought (and potential watering restrictions) will make it more difficult for many plants, particularly for those species that have their origin in northern Europe. Under high greenhouse gas emissions, Melbourne’s climate in 2090 will be more like that of Adelaide, where gardeners have to deal with much hotter and drier conditions. (Climarte)

The urban park came into its own in the 19th century when its greenery offered at least some relief from galloping urban spread and rising rates of pollution. Like the suburban villa, it sought to combine the virtues of both town and country life; a place where visitors could enjoy gentle exercise in picturesque surroundings. In botanical gardens, these were further enhanced by the careful planting of exotic species. In Kristin Headlam's painting, the parks are reminiscent of stage sets, with the growth of plants and trees (the props) contrasting with their carefully considered placement (by the director) - the natural versus the artificial. In this case, she chose a corner of the Botanical Gardens in Melbourne. (CNG)
