Widespread but patchily distributed drought death of forest trees occurred in
early 1988 on a limestone ridge at Mole Creek in Tasmania. A close juxtaposition
of damaged and undamaged vegetation probably reflects differences in the speed of
soil moisture decline down the length of individual soil-filled solution tubes in
which the trees are rooted. Possible palaeoecological, geomorphological and
silvicultural implications are briefly reviewed.
