A framework for identifying forests important for carbon storage based on the factors that account for high biomass carbon densities is described, including relatively cool temperatures and moderately high precipitation producing rates of fast growth but slow decomposition.
Forest resilience, biodiversity, and climate change: a synthesis of the biodiversity/resilience/stability relationship in forest ecosystems

The nature of Northern Australia : natural values, ecological processes and future prospects
The book offers a synthesis of the natural values and ecology of north Australia together with recommendations for actions needed to maintain these values. The book’s authors, John Woinarski (NRETA),…
Evaluating the role of the dingo as a trophic regulator in Australian ecosystems
Three broad questions are proposed to clarify not only the impacts of dingoes at all trophic levels, but also the mechanisms by which these impacts occur; the design of appropriate experiments is discussed, using principles that may also be applied to investigate species interactions on other continents.
Forest Conversion and Degradation in Papua New Guinea 1972–2002
Quantifying forest change in the tropics is important because of the role these forests play in the conservation of biodiversity and the global carbon cycle. One of the world's largest remaining…
Improving the Use of Species Distribution Models in Conservation Planning and Management under Climate Change
The effects of choice of variables, climate models and emissions scenarios can have on future species distribution models using two endangered species: one a short-lived invertebrate species (Ptunarra Brown Butterfly) and the other a long-lived paleo-endemic tree species (King Billy Pine).
Reconciling approaches to biogeographical regionalization: a systematic and generic framework examined with a case study of the Australian continent
Aim To develop a systematic and generic framework for biogeographical regionalizations that can assist in reconciling different approaches and advance their application as a research tool.
Estimating carbon carrying capacity in natural forest ecosystems across heterogeneous landscapes: addressing sources of error
Evaluating contributions of forest ecosystems to climate change mitigation requires well‐calibrated carbon cycle models with quantified baseline carbon stocks. An appropriate baseline for carbon…
Towards a hierarchical framework for modelling the spatial distribution of animals
A hierarchical framework for modelling the spatial distribution of terrestrial vertebrate animals based upon quantifying the environmental response of a species in terms of a five-level environmental hierarchy defined by scales that represent natural breaks in the distribution and availability of the primary environmental resources is presented.
