Understanding how severe wildfires influence faunal movement is essential for predicting how changes in fire
regimes will affect ecosystems. We examined the effects of fire severity distribution on spatial and temporal variation in
movement of an Australian arboreal mammal, the mountain brushtail possum (Trichosurus cunninghami). We used GPS
telemetry to characterise the movements of 18 possums in landscapes burnt to differing extents by a large wildfire. We
identified a temporal change in...[Show more]
