The ecological role of logs in Australian forests and the potential impacts of harvesting intensification on log-using biota

Claridge, A; Gilmore, Adam; Michael, Damian; Lindenmayer, Bruce D; Lindenmayer, David B


A review is presented of the ecological values of logs in Australian eucalypt forests. Logs are a key component of stand structural complexity and have critical functional roles for forest biodiversity including:- (1) providing nesting and sheltering sites for biota, (2) providing for aging substrates for predators like snakes and predatory invertebrates such as velvet worms, (3) providing basking and hibernation sites for reptiles, (4) facilitating animal movement, (5) providing places for key...[Show more]
