... to be unsettled from being concentrated into a smaller area of roosting habitat. Camp dispersal was advocated by some stakeholders seeking swift resolution. Others rejected the idea, considering the high cost and poor success rate of camp dispersal attempts elsewhere. Subsequently, several key stakeholders...

... Forest managers have neglected the vital role of fruit-eating and blossom-feeding vertebrates as pollinators and seed dispersers in forest tree reproduction. Grey-headed Flying Foxes are obligate frugivores and nectarivores of eastern Australian forests. This study demonstrates their importance...

Social interactions that facilitate mate pairing can become rare, reducing the likelihood of successful breeding pairs establishing. Against a backdrop of habitat loss and degradation, these factors may...

... Fruit-eating birds disperse many rainforest seeds, thereby influencing rainforest regeneration. The abundance of these birds may change following forest clearing, causing differences in seed dispersal between extensively-forested and fragmented areas. We assessed the responses of 26 frugivorous...
