Abstract

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. Despite a general presumption that this lowland subtropical region was completely forested prior to European settlement, recent historical research has indicated that certain areas were naturally open. The data reported here, a fossil pollen record and one radiocarbon date, reinforces that information for one type of locality, providing an initial indication of time depth
