Diels’ Photographic Sites - 82 years later

A study of Resilience in southwestern Australia

Appendix D


In 1900-02, Drs L. Diels and E. Pritzel travelled extensively in 

southwestern Australia. The outcome was the classic work, Diels, L 

906. Die Pflanzenwelt von West-Australien. In the process of translat-

ing and updating this text, we have tried to relocate and rephotograph 

the sites of the  plates in this mammoth book. Below are paired 

photos from 12 selected sites in Diels, taken 82 years apart.



Eradu, 46km E of Geraldton

Little change. Same mallee (Eucalyptus eusdesmoides) present, ‘grass’ (Ecdeioco-

lea monostachya) thinned out, Acacia rostellifera (dead in foreground) established 

and died during that time.


Mt Elphin-stone, Albany

Site almost unchanged. Ground cover of Lepidosperma aff. effusum now almost 

completely replaced by Stypandra imbricata and annual grasses.


Mouth of Denmark River

Original two karri trees blown over at a height of 39m by cyclone Alby, Jan. 1978; 

present stand up to 16m high, fringing vegetation now denser; Watsonia (South 

Africa) common along edge.


Newcastle (Toodyay)

Almost unchanged, except bare ground replaced by a wide range of annual weeds.


Leschenault Inlet, Bunbury

Only mangroves Avicennia marina left on S side of inlet are pictured in foreground; 

many mangroves on N side fallen over; in background, piles of woodchips, bauxite 

and harbour; retaining wall in foreground built about 96.



Grasstrees thinned considerably (human use); Banksia grandis replaced by Euca-

lyptus calophylla, new ground cover (Leptocarpus, Hakea sulcata, Lepidospermum 

ellipticum) suggests site now wetter.


Sukey Hill, 5km E of Cranbrook

Little change except emergent mallee (E. tetragona) not found, Dryandra armata 

(erect dark branches in Diels) is very short, although no evidence of recent fire.


White Peak, 10km N Geraldton


Most  of  the  surrounding 

area  cleared  for  farming;  veg-

etation now denser on peak; wild 

oats in valley; high species rich-

ness retained however Melaleuca 

gomphocephala replaced by more 

drought-tolerent  species;  peak 

fenced in October 1983, to protect 

rare species of Drummondita.


Lockier River, Mingenew

Watercourses severely degraded as indirect result of widespread clearing for agri-

culture in 90s; most trees and shrubs eliminated; slopes densely covered with 

annual weeds; a few native halophytes now present (increased salinity).



Travelled 40km around Meenaar without finding a thicket of Melaleuca uncinata 

beneath salmon gums (E. salmonophloia) as this provides the best farmland; pic-

tured is the closest remnant of salmon gum vegetation to Meenaar.



Almost no change. Fallen York gum (E. loxophleba) may have been in original 

photo; minor annual weed invasion


Southern Cross

Little change. Individual plants seem to have denser foliage; salt bushes (Atriplex, 

Maireana)  now  widespread  as  a  ground  cover  (saltier,  less  grazing?);  some 




Southwestern Australia has undergone massive human interference during the 

last 80 years. The level of direct interference has had greatest impact on structure 

of the vegetation and extent of invasion by annual weeds, while indirect interfer-

ence (increased salinity, low or higher water availability) appears to have had most 

impact on floristics of the dominants. Some floristic changes suggest a reduction 

in effective rainfall may have occurred during that time. Unlike Diels, none of his 

revisited sites showed evidence of recent fire.
