Justification of Ecoregion Delineation
The Tirari-Sturt Stony Desert includes four whole IBRA’s: ‘Stony Plains’, ‘Gawler’, ‘Flinders and Olary Ranges’, and ‘Broken Hill Complex’ (Thackway and Cresswell 1995). It is a vast region of chenopod shrublands, belah and mallee open woodlands, and mulga woodlands and scrubland with extensive gibber plains in the Sturt Stony Desert.
