Abstract

Despite archaeological research in Australia demonstrating 40,000 years of human occupancy, 1ittle is known of prehistoric utilisation of rainforests. What data there is reveals a wide range of human/rainforest interactions, related to the diversity of rainforest communities. Two examples are provided, one from western Tasmania, the other from northeast Queensland.
