Australian Zoologist (2021)
Published: 04 August 2021
...Harry F. Recher ABSTRACT In Australia’s eucalypt forests and woodlands, co-habiting birds differ in the foraging manoeuvres or methods used to search for and take prey, the substrates and plants on which prey are found, and the heights at which foraging takes place. On the Southern Tablelands...

... 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...

... The management and conservation of birds in eucalypt forests managed for timber production has emphasized the retention of trees with hollows (habitat trees) and the reservation of old-growth forest in reserves and corridors for species requiring mature forest or hollows for nesting. Although...
