Hollow selection by vertebrate fauna in forests of southern Australia and implications for forest management
We examined the types of hollows, and types of hollow-bearing trees, occupied by vertebrate fauna in temperate eucalypt forests in southeastern Australia. Hollow-bearing trees are selected for retention in wood production forests to mitigate the effects of logging on hole-nesting fauna. A total of 471 hollows was examined in 228 trees felled as part of routine logging operations. Fauna had occupied 43% of all hollows (≥2cm minimum entrance width; ≥5cm depth). Hollows with small (2-5cm), medium...[Show more]
