Bringing Back the Bettong: Reintroducing ecosystem engineers for restoration in Box-Gum grassy woodland
The grassy woodlands of eastern Australia have declined in their range by more than 95% through clearing and fragmentation. This decline has coincided with the loss of many digging or soil-foraging species that are considered to be 'ecosystem engineers' because of their role in biopedturbation and effects on other species and processes. Ecosystem engineers are therefore a priority for reintroduction to restore biodiversity and ecosystem function. However, there are gaps in our knowledge of how...[Show more]
