  The germination of species from southwestern Western Australia in response to the environmental cues involving fire and the postfire environment has received considerable attention (see reviews by Bell et al., ; Bell, ). An ecological survey of the kwongan south of Eneabba, Western Australia. A. B. & B. B. Lamont. Aerial. Field data were collected from two sites in the South Eneabba Flora Reserve, a part of the northern sandplain shrublands (kwongan), km north of Perth, Western Australia. These shrublands are fire‐prone with a mean fire return period of approximately 15 years (Enright et al., ). further south for Iluka (Eneabba). Nomenclature and taxonomy As per the recommendations of EPA (a), the nomenclature and taxonomic order presented in this report are based on the Western Australian Museum’s (WAM) Checklist of the Fauna of Western Australia The authorities used for each vertebrate group were: amphibians. kwongan at Eneabba, Western Australia (29? 53' S, ? 17 'E).

In the biodiverse northern sandplain shrublands of south‐western Australia, the woody shrub Banksia attenuata occurs on patchily distributed sand dunes, and coexists with B. hookeriana, B. menziesii, and two small tree species, Eucalyptus todtiana and Xylomelum angustifolium, which together comprise a plant functional group of large shrubs. Western Australia contains approximat angiosperms (half of Australia’s total flora), 75 percent of which are endemic to the southwestern region. The southwestern mediterranean climate regions are estimated to contain 8, species, with three quarters endemic. Western Australia is recognised as a global biodiversity hotspot, though has been experiencing decreased rainfall and increased drought over the past 40 years, causing great concerns for the long-term survival of its extraordinary plant diversity. The Stirling Range is a mountain system of Proterozoic origin in the southern part of Western Australia, reaching an altitude of m; it consists of acid rocks and has a mediterranean climate with a rainfall of ‐ mm/yr. It is the only extensive mountain system of this portion of the continent and presents a rich endemic flora. The vegetation of the area was investigated from

Abstract. Rhytidoponera violacea (Forel) (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) is a keystone seed disperser in Kwongan heathland habitats of southwestern Australia. Like many myrmecochorous ants, little is known about the basic biology of this species.

In this study various aspects of the biology of R. violacea were examined and the researchers evaluated how these characteristics may influence seed dispersal. A method for reconstructing bushfire history from fire marks on grasstree stems (Xanthorrhoea species) has been suggested for south-western Australia.

Depending on the grasstree age, the history can extend back for over two centuries. Such history is important in understanding the behaviour of bushfires and their effect on ecology; in managing them to protect people and their assets; and for.

The study area Location The study area is centered. The extraordinarily species-rich shrublands of the Mediterranean-climate, oligotrophic sandplains of south-western Australia (kwongan) and southern Africa (fynbos) have been the focus of studies attempting to determine the relative importance of neutral processes vs environmental filtering in relation to species turnover [8–10].

Biological Survey of South Australia Biological surveys are a key method for collecting information. The department collects detailed information on the size, distribution, abundance, growth, birth rates and mortality for species of plants and animals - threatened or common, pests or endemic - in marine and terrestrial environments.
