Open woodlands

A wide range of open woodlands dominate the drier, and often less fertile, areas of the Wet Tropics. Dominant trees vary and can be mixed -  Eucalyptus (including Corymbia), Acacia (wattle), Syncarpia (turpentine), Lophostemon (brush box) and Casuarina (she-oak). Wet Tropics open woodlands are similar to those found over most of tropical Australia. The species compositions of both canopy and understorey differ due to rainfall, soil type, fire frequency and vegetation history.
