Other relevant research is listed below:
- “Are protected areas maintaining bird diversity?“. Raynor et al. Ecography 37: 43-53. 2014 – concludes that protected areas in the ACT are effective in maintaining woody vegetation cover, but are less effective in protecting target bird species assemblage.
- “Reduced availability of habitat structures: Implications for policy and practice“. Le Roux et al. Landscape and Urban Planning 125 (2014), 57-64. – Shows that urban habitat structures were significantly reduced compared with semi-natural reserves. These reductions jeopordise urban ecological sustainability. Improvements in urban management policies and practices are urgently needed.
- “Lowland Woodland Fauna”. Woodlands for Wildlife: ACT Lowland Woodland Conservation Strategy, (Action Plan No 27), Ch 4. ACT Government
