The peninsula effect on bird species in native eucalypt forests in a wood production landscape in Australia

The peninsula effect - a decrease in species richness from the base to the tip of a peninsula - has been tested for a diverse range of taxa at continental and regional scales. We investigated the peninsula effect at a local scale by examining bird species occurrence in riparian strips (peninsulas) of native eucalypt forest within a radiata pine plantation in the Tumut region, south-eastern Australia.
