Tropical cyclones and the ecohydrology of Australia's recent continental‐scale drought
The Big Dry, a recent drought over southeast Australia, began around 1997 and continued until 2011. We show that between 2002–2010, instead of a localized drought, there was a continent‐wide
Valuing Public and Private Urban Tree Canopy Cover
type="main" xml:id="ajar12037-abs-0001"> In this paper, we estimate the effect of tree canopy cover on sales price of urban residential properties in Perth, Western Australia. Using a data set of
Spatial scale invariance of southern Australian forest fires mirrors the scaling behaviour of fire-driving weather events
Power law frequency-size distributions of forest fires have been observed in a range of environments. The scaling behaviour of fires, and more generally of landscape patterns related to recurring
Evidence That Higher Temperatures Are Associated With a Marginally Lower Incidence of COVID-19 Cases
The results suggest that warmer weather may modestly reduce the rate of spread of COVID-19, but anticipation of a substantial decline in transmission due to temperature alone with onset of summer in the northern hemisphere, or in tropical regions, is not warranted.
Area-wide management of fruit-flies: what are the costs and the benefits?
Increasing volumes and speed of agricultural trade and the opening of new markets for agricultural products create greater challenges to systems established to protect countries from invasive
Identification of the seasonal conditions required for dormancy break of Persoonia longifolia (Proteaceae), a species with a woody indehiscent endocarp.
The results outline for the first time how dormancy and germination are regulated in a species with a hard woody endocarps, insights which will significantly improve the understanding of other species with similar reproductive features.
Nitrogen limitation and calcifuge plant strategies constrain the establishment of native vegetation on magnetite mine tailings
Background and aimsMine tailings are challenging substrates for ecological restoration, as the establishment of diverse native plant communities can be constrained by a range of edaphic factors.
