Disturbances and structural development of natural forest ecosystems with silvicultural implications, using Douglas-fir forests as an example
Forest managers need a comprehensive scientific understanding of natural stand development processes when designing silvicultural systems that integrate ecological and economic objectives, includingExpand
An assessment of the published results of animal relocations
TLDR
The value of animal relocations as a conservation tool could be enhanced through more rigorous testing for the appropriateness of the approach in a given case, the establishment of widely used and generally accepted criteria for judging the success or failure of relocations, and better monitoring after a relocation, as well as better financial accountability.

Landscape modification and habitat fragmentation: a synthesis
Landscape modification and habitat fragmentation are key drivers of global species loss. Their effects may be understood by focusing on: (1) individual species and the processes threatening them, andExpand
Landscape moderation of biodiversity patterns and processes ‐ eight hypotheses
TLDR
This review uses knowledge gained from human‐modified landscapes to suggest eight hypotheses, which it hopes will encourage more systematic research on the role of landscape composition and configuration in determining the structure of ecological communities, ecosystem functioning and services.

SPATIAL AUTOCORRELATION ANALYSIS OFFERS NEW INSIGHTS INTO GENE FLOW IN THE AUSTRALIAN BUSH RAT, RATTUS FUSCIPES
TLDR
This study appears to be the first microsatellite‐based study of fine‐scale genetic variation in small mammals and the first to report consistent positive local genetic structure across sites, age‐classes, and sexes. Expand
Conserving Forest Biodiversity: A Comprehensive Multiscaled Approach
While most efforts at biodiversity conservation have focused primarily on protected areas and reserves, the unprotected lands surrounding those areas - the "matrix" - are equally important toExpand
Re-evaluation of forest biomass carbon stocks and lessons from the world's most carbon-dense forests
TLDR
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. Expand
Tree Hollows and Wildlife Conservation in Australia
TLDR
This work is an account of the dependent fauna of Australia, and introduces a considerable amount of new data on development of hollows, selection by fauna, pests and introduced species, and artificial hollows. Expand
The forgotten stage of forest succession: early-successional ecosystems on forest sites
Early-successional forest ecosystems that develop after stand-replacing or partial disturbances are diverse in species, processes, and structure. Post-disturbance ecosystems are also often rich inExpand
