High densities of bell miners Manorina melanophrys associated with reduced diversity of other birds in wet eucalypt forest: Potential for adaptive management

Kemmerer, Ernst; Shields, Jim M.; Tidemann, Chris

Description

High densities of bell miners (Manorina melanophrys) are known to accelerate dieback in eucalypt forests presumably through their negative impact on other avian insectivores and predatory insects. Some areas of moist eucalypt forest that are managed for sustained timber production also support very high densities of bell miners. In this study, we quantified the relative population density of bell miners in forests, and investigated the relationship between bell miner population density, the...[Show more]
