Eastern Australia mulga shrublands

WWF Abstract

Dense mulga shrublands extend from New South Wales into Queensland, Australia, growing on infertile, red soils. Mulgas are small acacia trees or shrubs that are highly drought-resistant. In these ecoregions, Mulga shrublands and sand plains combine with swamps, channels, small lakes, and claypans. Eucalyptus trees, such as the small bimble box tree, coolibah trees, and silver-leaved ironbarks grow here as well. Beneath the trees grows a short understory of shrubs and hardy grasses, such as speargrass. Semi-permanent lakes provide an important refuge for waterbirds in an otherwise arid area.
