Justification of Ecoregion Delineation
Justification for ecoregion delineation: The Coogardie Woodlands ecoregion comprises the ‘Coolgardie’ IBRA (Thackway and Cresswell 1995), and consist of mallee scrub and woodlands, transitional from the mediterranean to desert climatic zones. This ecoregion is part of the ‘South-west Botanical Province’ Centre of Plant Diversity, and corresponds to the ‘Southwestern Interzone’ region (Beard 1995).
