Victorian Natur 83(11): 294-299


Three vegetational zones are recognized the coastal zone, the grassland zone, and the rookery zone. Both grazing and burning contribute to the limitation of the flora, which is made up of only 71 species, of which 47% are introduced. Shrubs are nearly absent, being represented only by Lavatera plebeia. Atriplex cinerea. and the introduced Lycium ferocissimu. A species list is appended.
