I am not sure what "bush damper" means

Aboriginal people spread native plants by hand, new study finds

Bush-tucker plants were spread by hand across mountainous regions in New South Wales by Indigenous people, according to a new scientific theory published today.

The Black Bean Tree Seed – a mystery solved

    A tropical rainforest tree, which originates in Cape York
    The tree's heavy, toxic seeds are not eaten or distributed by animals
    While seeds drift in rivers, it's a scientific mystery how the species reached mountain tops
    It's known the seeds were cooked by Indigenous people as a bush damper



Newly published DNA research from a team of scientists and indigenous collaborators upturns botanical history, pointing to a vast and unacknowledged human influence in the distribution of Australia's native plants.
