... The Australian arid zone is a large complex area. In order to maintain its biodiversity, it is essential that landscape-wide and long-term analyses form the backdrop to the development of management strategies. From the current knowledge of the biodiversity and ecology of the arid zone...

.... In this chapter, we focus on three key challenges in developing a dynamic landscape approach to the study of arid-zone wildlife: (i) conceptualising landscape structure and dynamics; (ii) dealing with the problem of ecological scale and spatial autocorrelation; and (iii) the challenge of seasonal variability. We...

...Matthew J. Clancy; Etienne L. Littlefair ABSTRACT Anurans inhabiting Australia’s semi-arid and arid zones display eruptive breeding patterns. They emerge in large numbers to reproduce after significant rainfall before burrowing deep underground, where they remain concealed for extensive periods...

... in averages - and that it is these rare outlier events that are most likely to be relevant for Australia and for the arid zone in particular. A corollary of this point is that at present, the extremes, e.g. rainfall in the arid zone, are currently unpredictable and this unpredictability is likely to further...

Successful restoration of the arid zone fauna will require the restoration of ecological functions and species interactions, particularly nutrient cycling and predation. ...
