As to flora, the desert core of Australia results in desert vegetation that is adapted to scarce rain and ground water and so can go long periods with moisture stored, like the various cactus plants.

As to fauna, most noteworthy are the marsupials that carry their young while they develop to stages of self-sustaining maturity in pouches.
