We quantified changes in forest-dependent mammal populations when the habitat in which they live remains intact but the surrounding matrix is converted from open grazed land to closed pine plantation forest. This situation is increasingly common as plantations are often established on formerly cultivated or grazed land.We conducted a large-scale (30km2), long-term (14years) fully controlled and replicated (111 sites) 'natural experiment' in south-eastern Australia.
