Abstract This thesis aims to characterise the burning practices of North Kimberley Aborigines, both pre-colonial and modern, and explore the ecological processes that surround these practices. The study area was centred on the remote Aboriginal community of Kalumburu in the far North Kimberley and included surrounding lands. The scale of the research varies according to the approaches and the techniques employed. In some contexts the research was quite local but in other instances it included the whole North Kimberley and even the Kimberley region as a whole.
Additional Notes Abstract available only - Access restrictions apply to some components of this thesis that contain Aboriginal cultural knowledge (particularly chapter 3) however, much of the non-restricted material has been published, as listed in Table 1 (see Abstract)
