The use of den trees by the squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) in temperate Australian woodlands

Crane, Mason; Cunningham, Ross; Lindenmayer, David

Description

Effective conservation relies on understanding the biology of particular species and how they use key resources. For many arboreal mammals, tree hollows are a key den site. We examined the use of tree hollows by the squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) in south-eastern Australia. Over a five-month study, individual squirrel gliders used multiple hollow trees (averageā‰¤7) as den sites. Den sites were often adjacent to areas where nocturnal activities took place. The average distance between...[Show more]
