Paddock trees, parrots and agricultural production: An urgent need for large-scale, long-term restoration in south-eastern Australia
Scattered trees, or 'paddock trees', are keystone structures, which provide multiple ecological values. However, they are in decline in many places. This has serious implications for species that use them, such as the vulnerable Superb Parrot (Polytelis swainsonii) of south-eastern Australia. We outline three key aspects of the ecology, biology and distribution of the species that illustrate the implications of scattered tree decline. These are that (i) it depends on trees; (ii) it lives across...[Show more]
