... functions. A leading hypothesis is that turtles have declined through lost recruitment caused by high nest predation by invasive foxes. The ‘fox hypothesis’ is supported by experiments showing that nest predation rates exceed 95% in many regions. Furthermore, population surveys have repeatedly found...

...Harry F. Recher ABSTRACT Frequency of occurrence data are available for birds along a transect in Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia from 1928 to 2008. These data show a dynamic avifauna with about a third of the sixty-one bird species recorded declining in frequency since 1928, another third...

... region, Australia's most populous urban and peri-urban area, has alternatively been assumed to be natural or deduced to be due to anthropogenic introduction. I apply multiple lines of evidence to show that the occurrence of E. macquarii in the Sydney region is not natural and that the species has...

... ) in suppressing Red Fox ( Vulpes vulpes ) populations in Australia has been investigated, with various data tending to show an inverse relationship between densities of the two species (e.g. Letnic et al. 2012; Johnson and VanDerWal 2009). There are very few examples in the literature where direct killing...

Dingoes are no exception and demonstrate high levels of introgression of domestic dog genes, particularly in the temperate areas of south...

From 72 microsatellites tested, 12 show distinct differences in the alleles found in dingoes and dogs. Microsatellites...

Data from 200 WildCount camera sites within protected areas also showed marked differences in the distribution of the two canid species. At the scale...

..., and 2.6% of the total number of kangaroos in the commercial zone. The four decades of records of the population sizes show that the numbers vary between about 5 million and 18 million for the western plains, where the counting has been consistent over the same area since the beginning of the surveys...

... KBAs. Of these, 18 KBAs had >15% of their area burned. Critically, for the management of intact and recovering forests, we show that the degree of forest integrity and ecosystem intactness affected fire severity: more degraded forests and ecosystems experienced higher severity burns in the protected...

The results from the comprehensive surveys showed that even with high intensity fire over a large portion of the landscape, habitat recovery is relatively quick...

Burnt and unburnt sites showed slight, yet insignificant differences in the redetection rate of species, which was generally low (on average 50–65%). Our data does not reveal...

A recent systematic review of fire-induced mortality showed that a surprisingly high proportion of vertebrates typically survive fire (>90%), and a growing body of research is demonstrating behavioural adaptations that might facilitate survival during fire.
