Abstract

This article addresses environmental degradation often attributed to early pastoralism (and implicite clearance) in the Tablelands. Methods include : comparison of well-reported travel itineraries of 1817-1833 with modern land cover and stream channels; critical reviews of high-resolution pollen profiles and the issues of Aboriginal vs. Anglo-Australian fire ecology; and identification of soil erosion and gullying soils both before and after Anglo-Australian intrusion. There is no support for an apocalyptic model of colonial environmental history
