Results of this analysis are compared with those obtained from analyses of spatial turnover in species composition of vertebrates and vascular plants. Biological dissimilarity between sites is correlated with inter-site environmental differences for all...

...W. Ellis; A. Melzer; I. Clifton; F. Carrick We studied two groups of koalas during a drought in central Queensland to investigate potential impacts of climatic variability on the physiology and behaviour of this species. The tree use, water turnover, field metabolic rate and diet of koalas during...

Although the presence of individual, high site fidelity behaviour could not be precluded, the high turnover of flying-fox numbers on a within-tree basis precludes the presence of highly stable social groups, over the duration...
