Esperance mallee

WWF Abstract

"Mallee" is an Aboriginal term and refers to any short tree with a large underground stem fused with the main root, called a lignotuber. All eucalyptus trees with this growth pattern are referred to as mallees. So, too, is any plant cover that is dominated by mallee trees and shrubs. Mallee vegetation is widespread in Western Australia because these plants can survive in areas with low rainfall and poor soils. The Esperance Mallee ecoregion is an extensive shrubland dominated by mallee.
