Bowman, DMJS, Two examples of the role of ecological biogeography in Australian prehistory: The fire ecology of Callitris intratropica, and the spatial pattern of stone tools in the Northern Territory, Australian Archaeology, 41, (Dec 1995) pp. 8-11. ISSN 0312-2417 (1995) [Refereed Article]

Abstract

The author contends that ecological biogeography or analysis of contemporary ecological relationships can provide information on a speculative discourse associated with Palaeo-ecological and historic bio-geographic evidence. The contribution of ecological biogeography to two pre-historical problems, the impact of Aboriginal burning on vegetation and the spatial variation of stone tools is illustrated.
