A general description of the disclimax communities in the south-eastem Riverina is presented.

The disclimax communities are essentially the pastures developed on clearing some or all of the trees in the climax communities and grazing the herbaceous stratum. These pastures are discussed in relation to soil and the grazing factor.

Notes on the occurrence of weeds and the possibilities of pasture improvement are given.
