Thomson ABSTRACT Long-term monitoring of the Masked Owl Tyto novaehollandiae in a semi-urban landscape before, during and after large-scale habitat removal identified a positive response in breeding activity in the short-term and a change in prey selectivity.

Alarmingly, many landholders are choosing to diversify into goats which, though profitable in the short term, will extend the damage done by sheep. Low prices for wool from the sheep rangelands also amplify the clamour...

Although the shock stimulus is likely to be applied only for a very short period on relatively few occasions, it is by design an unpleasant experience for the animal. As such, some may contend that these short-term negative...
