Australia's vegetation - Australian Plant Information. There have been various attempts to devise a classification to accommodate the distinctive vegetation of Australia.

Australia's vegetation - Australian Plant Information

The system most widely recognised at present was drawn up by Specht (1970) and defines structural forms of vegetation in terms of the dominant plant form and the percentage of foliage cover of the tallest plant layer. The use of foliage cover rather than canopy cover takes special account of the open nature of eucalypt crowns. In this classification, a tree is defined as a woody plant more than 5 m tall, usually with a single stem. A shrub is a woody plant less than 8 m tall, frequently with many stems arising at or near the base. The map below gives a simplified representation of the major vegetation types in Australia.

Atlas of South Australia

During its long course of human history the Australian continental area has fluctuated significantly as global sea-levels adjusted to the advance and retreat of the polar ice caps. During the last glacial period, when much of the world's ocean water was locked up in ice and the coastline was considerably further seaward, Tasmania and Kangaroo Island were linked with the mainland, and Torres Strait was narrower. The initial human landfall in Australia seems to have been achieved by small numbers of seafaring people who arrived along the northern coasts.

Over time, climatic shifts provided more favourable conditions for Aboriginal hunter-gatherers over Australia, and local populations increased. Austn-indigenous-tools-and-technology.
