The Kimberley rangelands
The Kimberley has a tropical monsoonal climate with a wet summer (November to April) and a dry winter (May to October). This rainfall pattern leads to tropical savanna vegetation in the north and arid desert grassland in the southern interior.
Information on these plants can assist pastoral lessees and station managers to assess pasture condition and trend, and improve grazing management.
This information is from well-respected publications, and observations, monitoring and trials by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD).
