Abstract

SOME three miles north of Esperance, the land rises sharply to an extensive undulating peneplain of heath land, of about 500 feet elevation, some 30 miles wide and extending for many miles to the east and west. Except for limited areas of paperbark (Melaleuca sp.) and yate (Euc. occidentalis) in the swamps and scattered marlock (Euc. tetragona), chittick (Lambertia sp) and Christmas tree (Nuytsia floribunda) on the higher ground, little of this vegetation exceeds two feet in height. Much of it is capable of attaining somewhat greater stature, but has been prevented by frequent bushfires.
