Occurrence remarks Terrace boulder field on the mesa W of 'One Stone Hill' on 'Lisburne' Station between Blackall and Adavale. Dominated by eroding edges of low sandstone, quartzite and conglomerate tablelands, where massive boulders break away from cliffs and fall onto terraces. The terrace habitat extended 120m from the edge of the mesa plateau, but was mostly confined to the SE of the plateau covering 370m in length. High plant biomass abd boulders provided shelter from the sun and wind. Seeps from the hill above, caves and high humidity elevated the general plant water content. Relatively high plant species diversity. Dominant plant species: Acacia aneura var. latifolia, A. catenulata, A. ensifolia, A. petrea, Capparis lasiantha, Eremophila mitchellii, Heterodendrum oleifolium, Abutilon leucoptalum, A. malvifolium, A. oxycarpum var. oxycarpum forma acutatum, Malvastrum americanum, Sida filiformis, Spartothemnella puberula, Aristida jerichoensis, A. benthamii, A. caput-medusae, A. nitidula, A. personata, Brachiaria gilesii, Fimbristylis dichotoma, Paspalidium gracilis, Sporobolus actinocladus, S. australasicus, S. caroli, Sclerolaena johnsonii and Rhagodia hastata. The southern end of the terrace was dominated by dense Dodonaea filifolia and D. microgyza. 30 species were restricted to this habitat. Abundance - 0.3% coverage after rain 1989, 0.012% coverage in drought December 1992
