Evaluating the role of the dingo as a trophic regulator in Australian ecosystems
The importance of strongly interactive predators has been demonstrated in many ecosystems, and the maintenance or restoration of species interactions is a major priority in the global conservation of… Expand

Recent advances highlight the potential for predators to restore ecosystems and confer resilience against globally threatening processes, including climate change and biological invasions. However,… Expand
Eradicating multiple invasive species on inhabited islands: the next big step in island restoration?
Invasive species are the greatest threat to island ecosystems, which harbour nearly half the world’s endangered biodiversity. However, eradication is more feasible on islands than on continents. We… Expand
Complex interactions among mammalian carnivores in Australia, and their implications for wildlife management
Mammalian carnivore populations are often intensively managed, either because the carnivore in question is endangered, or because it is viewed as a pest and is subjected to control measures, or both.… Expand
Optimising Camera Traps for Monitoring Small Mammals
Practical techniques are required to monitor invasive animals, which are often cryptic and occur at low density. Camera traps have potential for this purpose, but may have problems detecting and… Expand
Niche overlap between marsupial and eutherian carnivores: does competition threaten the endangered spotted‐tailed quoll?
Summary 1 The significance of top-down regulation by carnivores is receiving increasing global recognition. As a consequence, key objectives in many programmes that seek to maintain ecosystem… Expand
Non-target impacts of poison baiting for predator control in Australia
1. Mammalian predators are controlled by poison baiting in many parts of the world, often to alleviate their impacts on agriculture or the environment. Although predator control can have substantial… Expand
Diet of the spotted‐tailed quoll (Dasyurus maculatus) in eastern Australia: effects of season, sex and size
The diet of spotted-tailed quolls Dasyurus maculatus (Marsupialia: Dasyuridae) in the north-eastern tablelands of New South Wales was investigated by faecal analysis. Medium-sized mammals (500–6999… Expand
Home range, denning behaviour and microhabitat use of the carnivorous marsupial Dasyurus maculatus in eastern Australia
Radio-tracking of spotted-tailed quolls Dasyurus maculatus (Marsupialia: Dasyuridae) in the forested ranges of north-eastern New South Wales revealed that home ranges were extensive, with males… Expand
