Résumé
[Truncated abstract] High diversification of growth forms within the Mulga species complex (Acacia aneura F.Muell. ex Benth. and close relatives) is characteristic of the mulga woodlands and shrublands of the Hamersley Ranges of the Pilbara region of northwest WA. However, it is unknown if particular growth forms predominate in different parts of the landscape and if their distribution is reflected in their ecophysiological functioning. The research presented in this thesis thus sought to : (a) determine if there were any identifiable trends or gradients in the morphological diversity within Mulga, particularly across landscape gradients, (b) if community patterns in morphologica
