8. VEGETATION The classification of vegetation communities used for this survey is based on that adopted by Specht (1970), (Table 2). A complete list of all botanical species observed in the survey area is given in Appendix II. During the survey a certain degree of variation was encountered between recorded vegetation types and associations, and those summarised in the "Report of the Land Units of the Katherine-Douglas Area". (Aldrick J.M. and Robinson C.S. 1972). This variability is to be expected when land unit descriptions are extrapolated over large areas where some climatic, geological and soil differences are likely to occur. To more correctly describe the actual vegetation existing in the land units of the Manbulloo area, the vegetation summary within the land unit descriptions has been modified from that occurring in Aldrick and Robinson's report. To aid any future botanical work in the Manbulloo area further detail on the vegetation types and their associations have been compiled separately as "Botanical Notes on some species collected in the Manbulloo area, 1976" (C.R. Gibbs 1977) . -47
