Nardoo, the Australian name for Marsilia macropus, one of the Rhizocarpeae or Hydropterideae, a small group allied to the club-mosses. They have delicate quatrefoil leaves on slender stalks, and small sporangia containing starchy spores which are used as a bread-stuff. The plant is abundant in swamps in the interior of Australia, where the survivors of the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition starved on its sorry produce.

“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
