How Aboriginal Australians Made Australia
The funders had no role in the study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript. Competing interests: The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. Delphinids are the most ecologically diverse cetacean, occurring across a range of latitudes, in coastal and oceanic waters, and in estuarine and freshwater habitats . In the last 25 years molecular techniques have markedly improved our understanding of cetacean taxonomy, including recognition of undescribed taxa within family Delphinidae  , . However, relationships within sub-family Delphininae remain uncertain  ,  ,  , largely due to their rapid global radiation and the ability of species to locally adapt .
Several species are distributed globally but show fine scale local population structure . The genus Tursiops has been plagued with controversy with historically upwards of 20 species described, all synonymised with T. Only recently T. In fact numerous studies have demonstrated that Tursiops is polyphyletic  ,  ,  ,  , . However, there is still controversy with two new distinct Tursiops species recently suggested  ,  , . In Australia, all Tursiops species have been historically recognised as T. In south-eastern Australia, morphological variation within Tursiops has been described for several decades  ,  , . In , Scott and Lord  detailed the external and skeletal morphology of a unique, sexually dimorphic, southern form of Tursiops as T.
A single male specimen was captured by H. Scott in in the Cataract Gorge, Launceston, Tasmania. At the time, media reports, exhibition signage, and Scott's own handwritten notes held in the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery indicated that he believed it belonged to a distinct southern form of T. In , a female specimen was obtained in the North Esk, Launceston, Tasmania. As stated, Scott and Lord  believed that the male and female belonged to the same species, and accounted for their numerous morphological differences by adding sexual dimorphism to the list of characters separating this southern form from the northern form of Tursiops.
Iredale and Troughton  formally named Scott and Lord's form  , Tursiops maugeanus. Validity of the species has not been accepted by later authors and has been synonymised with T. In addition, the whereabouts of the T. We have recently located the male and female syntypes of T. Locations of beach-cast dolphins suggest these two forms are parapatric, at least across some of their range. The smaller coastal form has been noted as both T. Charlton et al. Complementary microsatellite data indicated reproductive isolation among lineages . Two of these lineages corresponded to published sequences of T. The third lineage, including all SABD animals, was novel, the data suggesting it is a sister taxon of Lagenodelphis hosei Fraser's Dolphin.
Kingston et al. In a specialized Workshop on Cetacean Systematics was held to review cetacean taxonomy and provided criteria for species delimitation . Currently there are numerous Species Concepts, each with underlying properties that represent thresholds crossed by diverging lineages, different subgroups of biologist advocate different species concepts but they all exhibit underlying conceptual unity . De Queiroz  highlights that unity and proposes a Unified Species Concept, stating that species are separately evolving metapopulation lineages on different evolutionary trajectories, the farther along process of divergence, the larger the number of differences.
In this Unified Species Concept, any property line of evidence that provides evidence of lineage separation is relevant in species delimitations including genetic, morphological, ecological or behavioural . A highly corroborated hypothesis of the existence of a new species requires multiple lines of evidence, the farther along the process of divergence, the easier it becomes to find and highlight evidence of separation. In light of the confusion surrounding the taxonomy of these animals we use existing  ,  and new genetic data, external and cranial morphometrics, incorporating the syntypes of T.
Consistent with the recommendations of the Workshop on Cetacean Systematics  , and the Unified Species Concept  these multiple lines of evidence are used to establish the SABD as a new species of dolphin. Southern Queensland, Australia Museum specimens only. Only adult specimens with complete data sets were used those exhibiting secure fusion between maxillae and cranium . All measurements were taken by the first author. Cranial measures largely followed Kemper  and Wang et al. We included an undescribed measure, anterior pterygoid apex to palatine APAP ; plus two undescribed qualitative features, shape of the palatine and flattening on the maxilla at the base of the rostrum Table S1. As historically all Tursiops species were recognised as T.
However T. As such, we enlisted the technique used by Perrin et al. Beach-cast dolphins were opportunistically measured during —, by the first author and researchers at the Dolphin Research Institute, Monash University and the Department of Sustainability and Environment Victorian Government. Animals were excluded from analysis if data was incomplete, bloating due to decomposition had occurred, or if the animal was a juvenile less than cm in length. Data were standardized by converting the raw data to z-scores.
DFA was also used to identify the measures which drove separation of clusters. All analyses were completed using S ystat v13  and P ast v1. Where skin samples were not available museum specimens tooth samples were collected. Tooth samples were individually stored in sterilized Falcon tubes. Morse's Solution was used as it does not degrade DNA quality . Tooth samples were run from two separate extractions and two separate PCR reactions, including negative controls. Total genomic DNA was extracted from skin and tooth samples using a Puregene Tissue kit Gentra Systems following manufacturer's instructions, with modification for the teeth.
A negative extraction control was included to monitor contamination during the extraction process. PCR amplification and sequencing of a bp region of the cytochrome b gene and bp region of the control region was carried out using seven and three sets of primers respectively, each amplified a —bp overlapping fragment Table S5. A PCR negative control and negative extraction control were included in all amplification attempts. To ensure authenticity and reliability of the sequence obtained from the historical specimens, all PCR and sequencing was repeated providing independent and duplicate coverage of all sequenced bases.
All sequences were edited and aligned by eye using M ega 5 . Each individual sequence was assigned to a haplotype. These haplotypes were used to confirm the genetic identity of the specimens represented in the morphological data and were also compared to the available sequences of both Tursiops truncatus and T. Whilst the mtDNA analyses was conducted on both cytochrome b and control region in the current study, in order to assess the phylogenetic affinities of these animals, comparisons must be made with additional taxa in the subfamily Delphininae. In order to achieve this we have chosen to use the mtDNA control region in isolation, as conducting a consolidation analyses using both mtDNA regions of the wider Delphininae taxa would involve taking individual haplotypes from GenBank and assuming individual identity and locale, and thus may misrepresent the affinities of each taxa.
Mitochondrial DNA control region sequences representing multiple genera within subfamily Delphininae were downloaded from Genbank, including those previously reported in Charlton et al. A model and parameters for the phylogenetic reconstruction were determined empirically using likelihood via M ega 5 . Reliability of the nodes for all trees was assessed using 1, bootstrap replicates. Bayesian phylogenetic inference was conducted through M r B ayes 3. All other parameters in M r B ayes were set to default. The analysis was run over 2 replicates to assure convergence on a topology.
The Lagenorhynchus acutus sequence was used as outgroup see Table S6 for Genbank accession numbers. Hierarchical cluster analysis was performed on all cranial variables for 44 specimens and showed three highly supported groups cophenetic correlation of 0. A Hierarchical multivariate cluster analysis on cranial morphological traits showing three highly supported groups cophenetic correlation 0. Tursiops australis sp. B Discriminant function analyses scatterplot of canonical scores on cranial morphological traits delineating Tursiops australis sp.
Discriminant function analysis DFA was used to determine whether cranial characteristics would distinguish the same groupings identified by the cluster analysis. Hierarchical cluster analyses performed on 14 variables using 17 specimens clearly showed two highly supported groups cophenetic correlation of 0. A Hierarchical multivariate cluster analysis on external morphological traits showing two highly supported groups cophenetic correlation of 0. B Discriminant function analyses on external morphological traits delineating Tursiops australis sp.
DFA was also used on external characters to ascertain whether specimens were classified into the same groups as the cranial analyses. Again, a posteriori individual group assignments corresponded exactly. DNA data could not be obtained from QM skulls. From the 25 samples where DNA was available no T. A base sequence of the mtDNA cytochrome b region was obtained from 18 samples representing both cranial and external morphology groups Table S9. Six unique haplotypes were identified, three representing T. Forty-eight fixed site differences were noted between the two species Table 4. A base sequence of the mtDNA control region was obtained from 21 samples representing both cranial and external morphology groups Table S9.
Eight unique haplotypes were identified, three representing T. Ten diagnosable fixed base pair differences were found between the species Table 5. In a similar way to the cytochrome b region, T. Genetic sequences from the current study have been deposited on GenBank Table S Group 1 and southern form T. As stated, cranial and external morphology analyses presented several distinct groups. In all cases Group 1 incorporated the female T. MtDNA sequences cytochrome b and control region place the female T.

MP and NJ analysis methods showed very similar topologies, with minor discrepancies overall. The tree was characterised by low level of resolution for most nodes, however bootstrap support for differentiation of each species was more robust Firgure3a. Bayesian inference analysis showed only one slight variation in topology with the placement of Sousa chinensis Figure 3b.
Both ML and NJ phylogenetic reconstruction show a sister relationship to Stenella longirostris , whilst Bayesian analyses showed a sisters relationship to S.

Many of the artworks found in the central deserts of Australia are of much more recent origin, indicating a continuation of the style into recent years across a large part of Australia Griffiths, In particular, greenstone axes produced at the Mount William Stone Hatchet Quarry known as Wil-im-ee Moor-ring , on the outskirts of Melbourne, were revealed by McBryde to have travelled over kilometres across southern Australia.
The quarry today, listed as a National Heritage Place , bears the scars of thousands of years of mining by the traditional owners, the Wurundjeri. Deep pits were dug to reach unweathered stone; and the surface of boulders were heated to break away pieces of rock. The heads were then shaped using a large boulder as an anvil, which were then shaped further by their new owners. Though the whole tribe had an interest in the place, it was under the special custodianship of one man in the 19th century, a man named Billibellary , who had inherited this from his father, and traded stone for weapons, rugs and ornaments.
In one instance, a visitor exchanged a possum-skin rug for three pieces of the stone McBryde, Stone from the quarry reached the numerous groups of the Murray River , as far away as Yelta near Mildura. In turn, the people of the Murray produced goods from the roots of kumpung river grass. Twine was made by twisting fibre, which was used for fishing line; bags, belts and headbands; for binding axe heads; and for ritual purposes.
It was also knotted into nets, used to fish and catch emu, ducks, and small animals. Each group needed around thirty-five kilometres of raw twine to have a set of nets, which meant that twelve kilometres of twine had to be manufactured each year. In total, the process of creating a net took around a year of hour weeks. The work of preparing twine and smaller nets was done primarily by women, while men worked on the larger nets. Much like in pre-industrial England, work was cooperative and social, as people sat around, gossiped, and told stories while producing objects.
Great trading meetings were held on the Murray River. These festivities were often tied to particular food harvests, such as the collection of taarp lerp , a carbohydrate secreted on eucalypt leaves by plant-eating insects, prized for its sugary taste. The eel harvest of the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape — a sophisticated aquaculture system that is believed to have supported a sedentary population — was another major festivity, which attracted people from as far away as New South Wales and South Australia to feast on smoked eels caught in the traps. At the other end of Australia, the trading and exchange patterns of the people of Arnhem Land have also been extensively studied.
Thanks to challenging tropical conditions and the fierce resistance of the local Yolngu people, Arnhem Land was never conquered or systematically settled by British colonisation. For the British, its history is a series of failed military, pastoral and mining settlements. As a result, traditional Yolngu life patterns have remained strong to this day. In the s, the anthropologist Donald Thompson studied the trading patterns of the Yolngu people extensively. A man on the Lower Glyde River, for example, would have received black pounding stones from the east; possum fur, dillybags and spearheads from the south-east; boomerangs, hooked spears and ceremonial belts from the southwest; heavy fighting-clubs from the north-west; and foreign goods traded by Macassan sailors from the coastal north-east, calico, blankets, tobacco, knives and glass, much of which he traded away in further exchanges.
This exchange cycle was at the heart of Arnhem Land culture: each individual was under a social obligation to send gifts to partners in remote areas. The act of giving gave esteem, while slowness and a lack of generosity in giving earned disapproval, even social ostracism. Unlike trade elsewhere in pre-settlement Australia with the exception of the trade between Cape York, the Torres Strait Islands, and Papua New Guinea , Arnhem Land formed part of a truly international network of exchange. Anthropologist Campbell Macknight suggested that the trade began between and , while later scholars such as Darrell Lewis and Anne Clarke have argued that the Macassans started visiting much earlier, around years ago.
The trade only came to an end in , outlawed by the brand-new Australian government. While on the shores of Arnhem Land, the Macassans grew rice, built stone hearths, and traded with the local Yolngu community, exchanging tobacco, pipes, beads, belts, cloth, iron knives and axeheads and strong dugout canoes, known as lippa-lippa, for the right to fish on Australian waters and employ local labour. They introduced new technologies, such as the dug-out canoe, and inspired a shift in diet to one including more seafood. Macassan words entered the local languages, and some Yolngu people even spent time in the city of Makassar.
The Makassars were integrated into the global trade network, passing goods on to China and using Dutch coins thanks to Dutch colonisation in Indonesia. The extent of global connection to Arnhem Land is displayed by the mystery of a 12th century African coin found by a serviceman during World War Two. On his map the whole continent and its islands are joined in a single grid system of social and spiritual connections. Corpus Australis represents the country as connected through these nodes in the sharing of resources and technology over millennia. The map of Australia is remapped by Mowaljarlai as a map of the human body, with the line from the Gulf of Caprentariria to the Great Australian Bight the spinal column on which the body is constructed.
Cape York and Anhrem Lands constitutes the lungs, Uluru the bellybutton, the Great Australian Bight the public sections, and the southern offshore islands the feet. For Aboriginal people, society, the environment, and the individual person are not separate from each other. Life and land are intimately connected in a vast network interwoven across vast landscapes. These Aboriginal trading routes shape the way that we navigate the Australian landmass today. Thanks to their intricate knowledge of Country, Aboriginal navigators were able to cross the vast arid distances that would later defeat European explorers such as Charles Sturt , Ludwig Leichhardt, and Burke and Wills.
Many of the most successful exploits of settlers and explorers was thanks to their making use of older Aboriginal trade routes. John McDouall Stuart, the first European to cross the Australian continent, followed an Aboriginal route that led traders from spring to spring in the harsh South Australian outback, linking Cape York and the Kimberley to the southern coast. This route was used in the s to establish the Australian Overland Telegraph Line , connecting Port Augusta to Darwin, with the help of camels and camelmen from the Middle East and Asia. Similarly, the cattle thief and bushman, Harry Reardon, was able to successfully transport head of stolen cattle from Bowen Downs Station, kilometres north of Longreach, kilometres south to Hill Hill Station, South Australia, thanks to his communication with Aboriginal people, which allowed him to navigate the desert successfully.
The route he established from Lyndhurst to Innamincka was one long traversed by Aboriginal traders, who transported red ochre from the Ochre Cliffs near Lyndhurst north to the Gulf of Carpentaria and south to the Southern Ocean. The town of Halls Creek, Western Australia , was an important place of exchange for the traditional owners, the Jaru and Kija people, thanks to its location on the trading routes stretching from the centre of Australia to the Kimberley coast. Aboriginal people supplied thatching to South Brisbane from the reeds of this swamp. It was favoured for Aboriginal hunting drives on bush rats, scrub turkeys and other foods. The environmental context would have … provided for the larger gatherings … It is possible that … a camp site existed in the Musgrave Park area, as it offered a ridge sitting above significant wetlands and a creek … The area also offered a range of nature resources that would have provided most, if not all, requirements of daily life.
We know they did this from a camp close by, as Commander Logan sent soldiers to storm the camp to dissuade further raids. They know the localities of these extraordinarily exactly. Early settler Thomas Petrie grew up speaking the local languages. Lengthy gatherings were held, for hunts, ceremonies and tournaments, and for marriages. Where they continued into recent times, they may be assumed to have had an impact on the design of the towns that enveloped them.
Paul Memmott has shown that Aboriginal camps were a ubiquitous feature of Australian towns. This affected how Aboriginal people valued their camping grounds. The influx of Western goods and ideas provided a volatile space for growth and innovation. The continued occupation of rich resource areas and the likely maintenance of cultural obligations to country show that this was not the case. The Annual Report on the State of Aboriginals in New South Wales observed Aboriginal groups quitting traditional campsites during frontier violence, only to move back when peace was restored, with residents becoming workers on New South Wales homesteads. Their account shows their yumba played a key role in maintaining local sites, bush tucker, kinship and crafts.
His presentation was based — as he admitted — almost entirely on information provided by the Aboriginal people he knew, his timber crew being initially all Indigenous people. In south-east Queensland, the former campsites I was taken to by Aboriginal families were mostly located in current public reserves or parks, well within central business districts. This raises the question: which came first, park or camp? Early Brisbane maps do not detail Aboriginal camp locations, but Local Studies units within Brisbane suburban libraries hold local reminiscences that help to place them. Old maps, early memoirs, newspaper reports and the insights of local history groups and archaeologists further expand the results. From this basis, I was able to locate some historic Aboriginal camps within the Greater Brisbane area alone.
Aboriginal informants advised me that at least six Brisbane camps were still functioning into the s. In the following discussion, examples from southern Queensland are considered in more detail. See also McKenna Here he encountered a vacant Aboriginal camp. Significantly, early residents found a vibrant Aboriginal camp at the same location that Flinders had recorded a camp. Did the Aboriginal camps appear on account of the parks? A much-used well near the Woody Point Park was purportedly of Aboriginal origin. There was another such well just north of the Clontarf Water Reserve.
Richens In , missionaries described an Aboriginal camp on this spot, decades before the reserve was declared. As mentioned, this area was the focus of the mullet run. The camps were renowned for quality oysters and mud crabs. Aboriginal hearths for processing and roasting shellfish were once common around Clontarf. His several fireplaces showed me that this point of the river was numerously inhabited. Rather, over the following decades we have continuous reports about them in local newspapers.
However, this was not the first or last raid. The camps were destroyed by settlers and police at least seven times,91 but were continually rebuilt. For decades, there were reports of hostilities: raids on gardens, robberies, harassment, and counter-attacks by police and farmers.
