Author's notes

A bit of emu poop scattered on the headland, among all the roo poop, and very heavy browsing pressure to about 1.5 metres above the ground on Acacia sophorae (both photos), Rhagodia candolleana (3rd photo) and Westringia fruticosa. Myoporum boninense (bright gree shrub) and Banksia integ were untouched. The scat appeared full of seeds, probably Myoporum which was fruiting at the time. Possibly a Myoporum seedling has germinated out of the scat. Another possible culprit for the browsing is deer, but no deer scat was seen.
