This study was supported by Australian Commonwealth Government funding from the 'Caring for our Country' scheme and was part of a larger project managed by the South Australian Arid Lands Natural Resource Management Board. The project team of Henry Mancini, Dale McNeil, David Schmarr, Gini Lee and Gresley Wakelin-King greatly assisted this work. The fieldwork would not have been possible without the assistance of Graeme Tomlinson and Peter Richards. Travis Gotch supplied invaluable advice on artesian spring locations and characteristics. We thank the following landholders for allowing fieldwork on their properties; Randall Crozier, Norm Sims and Devon Durbidge of Mount Anna Station and Peake Station (S. Kidmans & Co.), Trevor Williams of Nilpinna Station, Douglas Lillecrap of Todmorden Station, Tony Williams of Mt Barry Station, Andrew Clarke and Rodney Fullarton of Allandale Station. We also thank reviewers and the editor for their comments.
