This paper reviews the biogeographical status and condition of the endemic rainforest species Allosyncarpia ternata. Allosyncarpia is restricted to the Arnhem Land region of the Northern Territory. It covers an area of approximately 1138km2 or 41% of all rainforest environments in northern and north-western Australia.

In this study Landsat MSS satellite imagery was used to identify the effects of different fire regimes over 15 years (1980 – 1995) on a variety of vegetation types including numerous endemic species. The study was completed in the sandstone formations of the Arnhem Plateau.

This conference paper presents the results of a study that identified the shortest and longest fire free intervals on vegetation types found on the Arnhem Plateau. The study used data for the period 1980 - 1995.
