... ability to survive the presence of toads postmetamorphosis. Predicting the ecological impacts of an invasive species on native taxa with biphasic life histories (such as most anurans) thus requires information on interactions in both aquatic and terrestrial environments. The expression of phenotypic...

Successful restoration of the arid zone fauna will require the restoration of ecological functions and species interactions, particularly nutrient cycling and predation. ...

... their effects can be beneficial. The positive effects of pests arise when they become deeply embedded in ecological communities and are involved in webs of direct and indirect interactions with other species. In this paper, I first outline the concepts of direct and indirect interactions, and then describe two...

An application to list dingoes as a threatened species under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 creates the potential for conflict between these two Acts. In this paper we describe...
