... survey to estimate both relative and absolute kangaroo densities. Methodology for fixed-wing aircraft was developed in the 1970s and has generally become standardized in areas where it is applied. The technique allows for broad-scale coverage of management areas and involves flying at a set height, speed...

...Robert Porter; John Weigel; Richard Shine Although the rough-scaled python Morelia carinata of north western Australia is one of the most morphologically distinctive python species worldwide, it remains virtually unstudied. Our fieldtrips have increased the number of animals seen in the wild from 2...

... the full impact of the fires due to taxonomic impediments. An underlying theme in almost all studies was that long-term and broad-scale monitoring of fauna and faunal habitats is essential if we are to build a robust understanding of how animals respond to fire, and in turn how managers can mitigate...

... species were among the decliners, including Laughing Kookaburra, Willie Wagtail Rhipidura leucophrys and Australian Magpie Cracticus tibicen . We conclude that no suite of birds is exempt from these environmental stressors, and predict that, as droughts reduce populations at regional scales and fires...

... as ‘national’, yet caring for nature can be done on many scales, and ecological systems is seldom work on national scales. This paper considers both ecological scales (regulated by the animal or plant under consideration) and personal scales (scales meaningful to the conservation manager). The idea that only...

... at the scale of the entire East Asian-Australasian Flyway has been slow. To reflect on lessons learned and consider how further progress might be made, we review some of the factors that have limited the full emergence of shorebird monitoring in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway, including fragmentation among...

But, many conservation-relevant decisions are idiosyncratic and made at small management scales (e.g., local government). Given a general...
