Short description Acacia harpophylla open forest on deformed and metamorphosed sediments and interbedded volcanics
Structure category Mid-dense
Description Acacia harpophylla shrubby open forest with a Geijera parviflora and Eremophila mitchellii low tree layer. Casuarina cristata, semi-evergreen vine thicket species and Eucalyptus spp. emergents (e.g. E. cambageana) sometimes present. Occurs on moderately to strongly deformed and metamorphosed sediments and interbedded volcanics. Colluvial lower slopes. (BVG1M: 25a)
Supplementary description Speck et al. (1968), Bannockburn, Malakoff, Banana
Protected areas Rundle Range NP, Goodedulla NP, Charon Point CP, Rundle Range RR
Special values Potential habitat for NCA listed species: Cadellia pentastylis, Denhamia parvifolia, Macropteranthes leiocaulis
Fire management guidelines STRATEGY: Maintain fire management of surrounding country so that wildfires will be very limited in extent. Frequent fire at the edge of this RE keeps fuel loads low. Protection from fire is necessary. ISSUES: Casuarina cristata is fire sensitive, although germination can be good in bare areas. Brigalow is soft-seeded, so germination is not promoted by fire. Buffel grass invasion will increase risk from fire. High intensity fires will cause damage to overstorey. Grazing may be an option for reducing fuel loads where exotic grass such as buffel have invaded.
Comments Extensively cleared for pasture.
