AUSTRALASIAN
Temperate Forest & Woodlands

The temperate forests and open woodlands of Australia are usually dominated by species of Eucalyptus. The different vegetation communities are often named for the main canopy species, and include Jarrah forest, Marri forest, Karri forest, Wandoo woodlands, Mountain Ash forest, Ironbark woodlands, Mallee woodlands and many others...

Fire can be a regular occurrence in the temperate Eucalytptus woodlands and open forests. The trees burn easily, as Eucalyptus have high amounts of flammable oil in their leaves. Human populations in Australia are concentrated in the south-east and south-west, often in or on the edge of these woodlands, thus there is a lot of effort and study put into managing fire regimes.
