Boab grove Featured 21 May 2014 Image

Boab grove

The boab tree (Adansonia gregorii) is unique to the Kimberley and Victoria River Regions of Australia. The tree is deciduous, and will lose its leaves and go into dormancy during the winter months, which is the dry season in the topics.Many trees in the tropical North Australia shed their leaves in the dry season to conserve water. The photo was taken in May which is the beginning of the dry season in North Australia. Interestingly the tree on the right has already shed its leaves while the tree on the left has not. Baobabs store water in the trunk to endure the harsh drought conditions particular to the region
