Sandplain Woody Pear (Xylomelum angustifolium)
Native to Western Australia, this small tree produces fruits that look rather like pears. The woodiness of the fruit protects the two-winged seeds within it from granivores (seed-eating animals) and fire. It splits into halves, either gradually over the course of several seasons of autumn rain followed by summer heat, or within hours in response to bushfire. This specimen, collected in 1905, is what is left once its seeds have been released.

تعيشُ هذه الشجرة الصغيرة في غرب أستراليا وتنتج ثماراً تشبه الكمّثرى. تمتاز فاكهتها بقوام خشبي لتحمي البذرتَين المجنّحتين داخلها من الحبيبات (الحيوانات الآكلة للبذور) والنار. وتنقسم إلى نصفَين، إمّا تدريجياً على مرّ مواسم الخريف التي تتخلّلها الأمطار وتتبعها أيام الصيف الحارّة، أو في غضون ساعات عقب اندلاع حرائق في الغابات. وتمثّل هذه العيّنة التي جُمعت عام 1905 كلّ ما يتبقى من الثمرة بمجرد أن تطلق بذورها.
