The use of den trees by the squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) in temperate Australian woodlands
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 (average≤7) as den sites. Den sites were often adjacent to areas where nocturnal activities took place. The average distance between...[Show more]
