Title: Sustaining the western myall woodlands : ecology and management / by Carolyn Ireland.
Author: Ireland, Carolyn
Issue Date: 1997
School/Discipline: Dept. of Environmental Science and Rangeland Management
Abstract: This study is conceived to address various aspects of western myall (Acacia papyrocarpa Benth) recruitment, lifespan, distribution and the effects of major vertebrates on the species' ecology over the major part of its range in South Australia. A study of the population dynamics of the species is done to assess the adequacy of net recruitment. Population structure is examined across the woodlands. The new concept of "fossil paddocks" is adopted to investigate the historical impact of introduced herbivores on the landscape.
