Continuous monitoring of feeding by koalas highlights diurnal differences in tree preferences
Context It is difficult to measure feeding rates for most wild nocturnal mammalian herbivores. Thus, although koalas are a popular species to study, we have a poor understanding of their activity patterns and feeding ecology. Researchers often assume that the trees that koalas occupy during the day indicate feeding preferences, but they may better reflect preferred resting sites. Aims We recorded the activities of koalas, with an emphasis on their feeding, particularly when they fed, the trees...[Show more]
