... Forest wildlife management in Australian eucalypt forests emphasizes the retention of tree hollows for fauna requiring hollows for nesting or denning. This overlooks the requirements of birds in eucalypt forests for a variety of resources for nesting and foraging other than tree hollows. Some...

... production, but there are exceptions and socio-economic reasons for developing more integrated systems. Retaining patches of habitat on selected coupes combines some of the benefits of both approaches, and has been introduced on a trial basis in mixed eucalypt forests and ash forests, with associated...

... This study examined the influence of vegetation structure of thinned regrowth, unthinned regrowth and mature eucalypt forest on heliothermic skink populations. Thinned sites characterized by an open vegetation structure, an increase in penetrating sunlight and the availability of “litter-free...

... of introduced species. Very small (<5 ha) remnants of eucalypt forest also lose small-bodied native birds, and additionally show increases in larger-bodied species. Suburbs that are better-vegetated resemble the very small remnants: they have not re-acquired small-bodied native species, but have more large...

... surveys. Targeted searches were conducted for amphibians beside creeks, fire dams and swamps. A total of 33 species of reptile and 16 species of amphibian were detected. The highest species richness and density of reptiles occurred in eucalypt forests that contained rock outcrops. Closed forest had...
