Overview, Critical Assessment, and Conservation Implications of Koala Distribution and Abundance
Abstract: Regional and national surveys provide a broadscale description of the koala's present distribution in Australia. A detailed understanding of its distribution is precluded, however, by past…
Dispersal patterns in a regional koala population in south-east Queensland
Koala dispersal was investigated as part of a detailed ecological study of a nationally significant koala population located 20 km south-east of Brisbane, Queensland, and it is likely that the social behaviour and mating systems of koala populations provide mechanisms for young koalas to disperse.
Phylogeographic differentiation in the mitochondrial control region in the koala, Phascolarctos cinereus (Goldfuss 1817)
It is concluded that the appropriate short‐term management unit (MU) for koalas is the local population, and significant differentiation in mtDNA‐haplotype frequencies between localities suggested that little gene flow currently exists among populations.
Genetic variation and structuring in the threatened koala populations of Southeast Queensland
It is likely, therefore, that more recent reductions in population size and restricted gene flow through urbanisation have contributed to the genetic differentiation of koalas in the Koala Coast region.
Temporal expression of G-protein-coupled receptor 54 (GPR54), gonadotropin-releasing hormones (GnRH), and dopamine receptor D2 (drd2) in pubertal female grey mullet, Mugil cephalus.
Tree use, diet and home range of the koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) at Blair Athol, central Queensland
Free-ranging koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) were monitored by means of radio-relocation in the area of Blair Athol Coal Mine and surrounding properties, and patterns of daytime tree use and diet selection varied between individuals inhabiting adjacent communities within the site.
Food of the platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) with notes on the food of brown trout (Salmo trutta) in the Shoalhaven River, N.S.W
Feeding in the platypus Ornithorhynchus anatinus was investigated by identifying material found in the cheek pouches of animals trapped in nets in a study area on the upper Shoalhaven River, N.S.W.…
Breeding dynamics of koalas in open woodlands
The conclusion from this study is that ‘resident’ status among males does not confer any advantage for parentage, and the population at Blair Athol comprise a population in genetic equilibrium.
Climate change and the koala Phascolarctos cinereus: water and energy
Neither females with pouch young nor those with back young had significantly different FMR to that of females without young, confirming that koalas may compartmentalize energy demands during lactation.
Spermatogenesis in some Australian marsupials.
From the number of cells labelled in tubular cross-sections at different stages of spermatogenesis 1 hr after an intra-arterial injection of [3H]thymidine, it was concluded that at least four synchronized peaks of mitosis occurred in the sperMatogonia of M. rufogriseus.
