This map of the potential distribution of Gorse has been produced from CLIMATE modelling, overlayed with:

Overlays used

Land uses:
Pasture irrigated and dryland
Forestry private and public

Soil pH:
Soils less than or equal to pH 7

Broad vegetation types:
Coastal scrubs and grasslands; dry foothill & moist foothill forests, montane dry woodlands; montane moist forests; grasslands; plains grassy woodlands; valley grassy forests; coastal grassy & herb-rich & riverine grassy woodlands; riparian forests; rainshadow woodlands; and mallee heath.

Colours indicate possibility of

Red = Very High
Orange = High
Light Green = Medium
