67(2) 99 - 124
The vegetation of the Nullarbor Plain and Great Victorian Desert between Rawlinna and Warburton, Western Australia, forms a number of broad habitat zones with an east-west orientation. From south to north these distinct belts are open plain shrub steppe, low layered myall woodland, low layered mallee, desert dune complex, breakaway and mulga country, desert complex, and mulga scrub. Many bird species have an east-west strip distribution correlated with these habitats which connect populations in Western Australia and South Australia.
