... is known about the effects of thinning on bat activity, especially in Australia. In a preliminary study, we compared the activity levels of all bats, one open-space and three edge-space aerial foraging bat guilds in unthinned ( n = 3) and thinned ( n = 3) regrowth, in forests managed for timber...

.... The trends in abundance observed amongst all reptiles and common reptiles were largely due to the numbers of skinks. In general, skink abundance was significantly lower in the 11–20 years since harvest period and highest in the first ten years after harvesting. A majority of these skinks belonged to a guild...
