Literature & references:

Joelle Gergis, Sunburnt Country: The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia, MUP, 2018, p. 199-200:
“As Australia continues to warm, corresponding declines in the duration and depth of snow cover will dramatically alter alpine communities and landscapes. The risk of more fires in alpine peatlands becomes more likely as these ancient swamps begin to dry out. In the early months of 2016, savage bushfires ravaged western Tasmania’s precious World Heritage rainforests, burning alpine areas that have not experienced fire for over 8000 years…. The state of our alpine areas may be one of the clearest signs that despite the incedible resilience of our natural heritage over millenia, Australia’s most precious landscapes will vanish within our lifetime, an eventual death by a thousand cuts.”

Note:

Loxton has traditionally, and rightly, been admired for his Alpine winter landscapes; the inherent whiteness and glare of the snow allowed full scope to his skills as a watercolourist.
