Patch use by the greater glider (Petauroides volans) in a fragmented forest ecosystem. I. Home range size and movements

Pope, M; Cunningham, Ross; Lindenmayer, David

Description

This paper examines home-range attributes of 40 greater gliders (Petauroides volans) in five patches of remnant eucalypt forest surrounded by stands of radiata pine (Pinus radiata) near Tumut in south-eastern Australia. Fixed-kernel smoothing methods were used to estimate home-range size for P. volans. For males, home-range size varied from 1.38-4.10 ha (mean = 2.6 ± 0.8 ha, n = 12) and was significantly larger (P < 0.05) than for females (1.26-2.97 ha, mean = 2.0 ± 0.6 ha, n = 11). Home-range...[Show more]
