A study was conducted on the Liverpool Plains (30o 43’–31o 44’S; 149o 40’–150o 41’E), North Western Slopes of NSW, to determine the original boundaries of the naturally-treeless grasslands, to determine reasons for the lack of woody vegetation on these areas, and to assess the status of Austrostipa aristiglumis (Plains Grass), a species that is today commonly dominant on the few remaining remnant grassland areas and is commonly assumed to characterise the original grassland community. The… Expand

Native grasslands on non-arable slopes of the Garrawillie Creek sub-catchment, Western Liverpool Plains, New South Wales
TLDR
The present study looked at such native grasslands on non-arable slopes in the Garrawillie Creek sub-catchment at the western margin of the Liverpool Plains, interpreted as states in a state and transition model, in which rock type, aspect and possibly microtopography were important factors determining the states.

The use of the land survey record to reconstruct pre‐European vegetation patterns in the Darling Downs, Queensland, Australia
TLDR
Comparison of the survey record and the vegetation of existing remnants suggests that overstorey composition and understorey density have changed little during European management within remnants. Expand

TLDR
The role of small mammals in disturbing soils, and implications for incorporation of organic matter, aeration, improvement in infiltration and the provision of suitable sites for seed germination and seedling establishment are reviewed. Expand
