The significance of vegetation, fire and man in the stabilisation of sand dunes near the Warburton Ranges, Central Australia

Abstract
The vegetation cover of sand dunes and sandplain country in a part of Central Australia is aperiodically destroyed by fire, caused by lightning and Aboriginal activities. Subsequent mobilisation, transportation and redeposition of sand by wind suggests that these vegetated sand dunes are currently unstable.
