Abstract

The Spring Creek site contains a diverse, late surviving megafaunal assemblage, in association with plant material dated at 19 8000yr BP. Flora from the locality indicates a lack of trees and includes species from both water stress and water associated environments. The combination of water associated plant species now inhabiting high altitudes with some animals today found only in arid regions may have been caused by the colder and drier climatic conditions prevalent during the last glacial maximum in SE Australia.-from Authors
