.... This local decline and recovery occurred against a background of pastoralism from the 1960s to the 1980s, patch fires in the early 1980s and an increase in the abundance of introduced foxes Vulpes vulpes from the 1970s onwards. There are three main hypotheses concerning the decline and recovery...

... populations. Modelling studies have identified P. volans requires intact native forest patches of at least 160 km2 to remain viable (Eyre 2002), and decline is known to occur based on the proportion of cleared habitat within 1 km of their range (Eyre 2006). Maintaining the integrity and extent of suitable...
