Small patches can be valuable for biodiversity conservation: two case studies on birds in southeastern Australia

Fischer, Joern; Lindenmayer, David B


Presence/absence datasets on birds from two landscapes in southeastern Australia were analysed as a case study to examine the conservation value of small habitat patches.
