... there is strong evidence. An opposing view, here termed the Adaptable Bat syndrome, emerged in the 1980's. Rather than being of conservation concern, bats were portrayed as resilient, adaptable ecological generalists that could not “reasonably” be considered at risk from human impacts. The Adaptable Bat...

Reports of impacts of dingoes on livestock production have neglected the role of dingoes as a hypercarnivorous trophic regulator. This study proposes that dingo predation on livestock can be managed by adapting livestock...
