..., forest structure and logging history. Koalas preferred structurally complex, uneven-aged forests with some mature and oldgrowth elements, a large basal area, and mixed species associations dominated by tallowwood, grey gum and forest oak. Koalas were least abundant in plantations and structurally uniform...

... sensitive to logging. Thinning and control burning may have potential value as tools to modify regrowth forest structure to benefit the latter group, but this new concept needs field-testing. A general focus on hollow-dependent species may have diverted attention from the needs of other groups. A logical...

Thinning is an integral component of regrowth management and could reduce structural clutter to a level suitable for bats with a range of clutter tolerances; yet little...
