Similarly Withers and Ashton (1977) reported increased dominance of shade tolerant Allocasuarina species, the development of a thick soil litter layer and the decline of the overstorey E.
Kirkpatrick and Marks (1985) inferred that relatively high drought tolerance of Allocasuarina enabled it to displace eucalypts in a woodland of southern Tasmania.
Even in the genera with mostly dioecious representatives in Western Australia, such as Allocasuarina, only one of the shrubby kwongan members is monoecious (A.

The forest comprises a mosaic of woodland and open forest communities with various Eucalyptus, Angophora, Corymbia, Callitris, Allocasuarina and Acacia species and is significant as one of the largest surviving woodland remnants in the Great Dividing Range western slopes bioregions.
The vegetation at the site was open forest comprising White Cypress Pine Callitris glaucophylla, Buloke Allocasuarina luehmannii and an unidentified species of Red Gum Eucalyptus sp.
Revision of Laryngodus HerrichSchaeffer, an Allocasuarina feeder, with comments on its biology and the classification of the family (Heteroptera: Lygaeoidea: Rhyparochromidae).
Soils from site-vegetation type P, which support Eucalyptus marginata, Allocasuarina fraseriana, and Eucalyptus calophylla, were pale sands that had significantly lower concentrations of total nitrogen and extractable potassium, and a significantly lower proportion of gravel than soils from the other site-vegetation types (P [is less than] 0.
The taller shrubs Acacia doratoxylon, Acacia homophylla, Acacia deanei and Allocasuarina verticillata are considered to be dis-climax species in the region, with life spans of 30 to 50 years.
Allocasuarina verticillata may have benefited from reduced competition early in the progress of the drought but soon showed a lack of fruiting, then dieback.
The habitat in which the snake was captured is described as an ecotone between dry heathland dominated by Heath Banksia Banksia ericifolia, Scrub She-oak Allocasuarina distyla, Broadleaved Drumsticks Isopogon anemonifolius and Dagger Hakea Hakea teretifolia, and dry forest dominated by Turpentine Syncarpia glomulifera.
Semi-arid woodlands are characteristically dominated by trees other than eucalypts, notably Belah Casuarina pauper, Buloke Allocasuarina luehmannii, Slender Pine Callitris gracilis and Sugarwood Myoporum platycarpum (plant nomenclature follows Walsh and Stajsic 2007).
The plant is not widespread and is largely an obligate parasite on Buloke Allocasuarina luehmannii and Belah Casuarina pauper in Victoria, although it is occasionally recorded on other hosts (Marriott 2012).
