Birds of a feather flock together: Using trait-groups to understand the effect of macropod grazing on birds in grassy habitats

Howland, Brett; Stojanovic, Dejan; Gordon, Iain; Radford, Jim; Manning, Adrian; Lindenmayer, David

Description

Restoration of appropriate disturbance regimes is a high conservation priority. However, for most species, little is known about appropriate disturbance regimes to achieve defined conservation outcomes. In this context, traitbased approaches can offer a means to generalize responses to environmental change across multiple species. Here, we investigated the potential of a trait-based approach to predict the preference of birds utilizing the grassy layers for different levels of grazing by a...[Show more]
