Invertebrates and the Restoration of a Forest Ecosystem: 30 Years of Research following Bauxite Mining in Western Australia
Restoration needs to consider more than just soils and plants. The role of terrestrial invertebrates in the restoration of Alcoa’s bauxite mines in the Jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata) forest of WesternExpand

Considering extinction of dependent species during translocation, ex situ conservation, and assisted migration of threatened hosts.
Translocation, introduction, reintroduction, and assisted migrations are species conservation strategies that are attracting increasing attention, especially in the face of climate change. However,Expand

Diversity, endemism and species turnover of millipedes within the south-western Australian global biodiversity hotspot
Aim  To examine how current and historical environmental gradients affect patterns of millipede (Diplopoda) endemism and species turnover in a global hotspot of floristic diversity, and to identifyExpand

Simplifying assessment of forest management practices for invertebrates: How effective are higher taxon and habitat surrogates for spiders following prescribed burning?
Abstract Taxonomic impediments require us to know if simpler approaches such as using higher taxa or habitat surrogates can help assess the needs of invertebrates when managing forests. This studyExpand

Population structure, growth and longevity of Placostylus hongii (Pulmonata: Bulimulidae) on Tawhiti Rahi Island, Poor Knights Islands, New Zealand
Placostylus hongii, a threatened snail species, was studied on Tawhiti Rahi Island in the Poor Knights Islands group off the east coast of northern New Zealand between 1998 and 2000. Most live snailsExpand

Current constraints and future directions in estimating coextinction.
Coextinction is a poorly quantified phenomenon, but results of recent modeling suggest high losses to global biodiversity through the loss of dependent species when hosts go extinct. There areExpand

Resource allocation for efficient environmental management.
Environmental managers must decide how to invest available resources. Researchers have previously determined how to allocate conservation resources among regions, design nature reserves, allocateExpand

Restoration of a forest ecosystem: The effects of vegetation and dispersal capabilities on the reassembly of plant-dwelling arthropods
Restoration of degraded forest ecosystems is critical to conservation, but it is unknown if all components can be successfully restored. Despite the obvious dependence of plant-dwelling arthropods onExpand

REFINING SAMPLING PROTOCOLS FOR INVENTORYING INVERTEBRATE BIODIVERSITY: INFLUENCE OF DRIFT-FENCE LENGTH AND PITFALL TRAP DIAMETER ON SPIDERS
Abstract The limited resources available to inventory biodiversity and conduct ecological monitoring requires efficient protocols for sampling with pitfall traps. Here we consider adding differentExpand

Further evidence of the coextinction threat for jumping plant-lice: three new Acizzia (Psyllidae) and Trioza (Triozidae) from Western Australia
Three new species of jumping plant-lice (Psylloidea) are described from Western Australia. Acizzia hughesae sp.n. occurs on Acacia veronica Maslin (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae), A. mccarthyi sp.n. on anExpand
