Contribution of genetics to ecological restoration
Ecological restoration of degraded ecosystems has emerged as a critical tool in the fight to reverse and ameliorate the current loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Approaches derived fromExpand

Identifying unidirectional and dynamic habitat filters to faunal recolonisation in restored mine-pits
1.There is increasing evidence that passive faunal recolonisation of restored areas can take decades or even centuries, reducing benefits to biodiversity from restoration. Thus, there is a need toExpand

Bushcricket spermatophores vary in accord with sperm competition and parental investment theory
Sperm competition theory predicts that males will vary the number of sperm ejaculated according to the intensity of competition expected over the fertilization of eggs. Parental investment theoryExpand

Who's for dinner? High‐throughput sequencing reveals bat dietary differentiation in a biodiversity hotspot where prey taxonomy is largely undescribed
Effective management and conservation of biodiversity requires understanding of predator–prey relationships to ensure the continued existence of both predator and prey populations. Gathering dietaryExpand

Bat habitat use in logged jarrah eucalypt forests of south-western Australia
1. Ecologically sustainable forest management is being implemented to address the competing demands of timber production and conservation, but its effectiveness is poorly understood. Bats play keyExpand

Does habitat structure influence capture probabilities? A study of reptiles in a eucalypt forest
Pitfall traps are commonly used to examine differences in reptile communities among habitat types and disturbance regimes that differ in structure. However, capture rates and probabilities may beExpand

The short-term impacts of logging on the jarrah forest avifauna in south-west Western Australia : implications for the design and analysis of logging experiments
Logging is a major threat to global avian diversity. If the management of logged forests is to preserve avian diversity effectively, it is critical that management decisions are driven by rigorousExpand

Evaluation of the impact of time of day, weather, vegetation density and bird movements on outcomes of area searches for birds in eucalypt forests of south-western Australia
We assessed the influence of sampling biases on estimates of absolute density. Using area searches for birds on 1-ha plots, we showed that time of day, weather and vegetation density (logged v.Expand

Geographic and taxonomic patterns of extinction risk in Australian squamates
Australia is a global hotspot of reptile diversity, hosting similar to 10% of the world's squamate (snake and lizard) species. Yet the conservation status of the Australian squamate fauna has notExpand
