... 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...

... these measures are important, they may not provide the full range of resources required by the eucalypt forest avifauna. In addition to using tree hollows as nest sites, forest birds have specific requirements for nesting materials (e.g., spider web, lichen), for nest sites other than tree hollows, for foraging...

... Dry rainforest occurs throughout the wet-dry tropics as isolated patches in a matrix of savanna woodland. Dry rainforests may provide important stepping stones for migrating forest birds, resources for woodland birds, and a significant component of bird diversity in arid inland landscapes. Dry...

The continued abundance and diversity of species/guilds through the winter is best explained by the variety of food resources available for birds; the complexity of foliage, bark, and ground substrates...

... with declines in abundances of prey and host species. Declines in abundance and breeding were probably linked to declines in food resources, although there were no consistent changes in the foraging behaviour of birds. There was a modest recovery in breeding effort and species abundances in 2010 following above...

Cody (1973) considered knowledge of foraging ecology the most basic and critical part of avian biology. Information on the resources required by birds for feeding and breeding and how these differ...

... Timing of seasonal reproduction by flying-foxes is apparently dependent on an endogenous circannual rhythm, coded in their genome. Ultimately, evolution of an endogenous rhythm aligns an important reproductive stage, such as lactation, with resource availability such as the occurrence of maximum...

Vegetation type was a strong discriminator of bird composition. I recorded a number of mangrove-obligate species (e.g. Collared Kingfisher, Mangrove Robin...
