... 1919 and 1952 respectively. A total of twenty-two species were collected of which eighteen were found to utilize mined areas. Species abundance differed significantly between sites, with the mined areas supporting fewer, but larger animals. Abundance could be explained by regeneration age, log...

... Important freshwater systems found in arid areas range from springs to waterholes and rivers. Periods of extreme aridity in the Pleistocene, especially during the last glacial period, resulted in the drying of most freshwater systems apart from a few permanent water holes and artesian springs...

... landsystems of Sturt National Park in the arid north-western corner of New South Wales. We found that the signature of the past 100 years of grazing by livestock remains regardless of whether AWP are retained or closed. We found no evidence of water-focussed grazing by Red Kangaroos but rather, like native...

.... There was no difference in species richness or diversity of small mammals between grazed/burnt and ungrazed sites, but species composition did differ. The fawn-footed melomys Melomys cervinipes was found only at ungrazed sites, all of which were characterised by a dense, complex shrub understorey. In contrast, the New...
