Description :
This paper records sedimentary data which indicate that at least part of the Wilsons River floodplain, on the margins of the subtropical rainforest known as the Big Scrub, has a long and certainly pre-European history of relative treelessness. The data reported here, a fossil pollen record and one radiocarbon date confirm these results and support the historical interpretation of the Grasses of the Big Scrub district.
