Population genetic analysis reveals a long-term decline of a threatened endemic Australian marsupial

Hansen, Birgita D.; Harley, Daniel K.P.; Lindenmayer, David; Taylor, Andrea Carolyn


Since European colonization, Leadbeater's possum (Gymnobelideus leadbeateri) has declined across its range to the point where it is now only patchily distributed within the montane ash forests of the Central Highlands of Victoria. The loss of large hollow-bearing trees coupled with inadequate recruitment of mature ash forest has been predicted to result in a reduction in population size of up to 90% by 2020. Furthermore, bioclimatic analyses have suggested additional reductions in the species'...[Show more]
