Dynamics of a temperate grassland reptile community in the mid-north of South Australia
(Royal Society of South Australia, 2014-11)
Temperate native grasslands are listed as a critically endangered ecological community in South Australia, yet very little is known about the associated faunal communities. This study aims to provide information on the ...
Successional specialization in a reptile community cautions against widespread planned burning and complete fire suppression
Conservation of biodiversity in fire-prone regions depends on understanding responses to fire in animal communities and the mechanisms governing these responses. We collated data from an Australian semi-arid woodland ...
The response of a sleepy lizard social network to altered ecological conditions
(Elsevier Masson, 2013-08-14)
The use of social networks to describe animal social structure is increasing, yet our understanding of how social networks respond to changing ecological conditions remains limited. Animal behaviour is often constrained ...
Visual conspecific cues will not help in pygmy bluetongue lizard translocations
(Elsevier BV, 2013-11-19)
Where a translocation program is used to reinforce an existing population of an endangered species, the response of the introduced individuals to cues from conspecific residents will have an important impact on the success ...
Resources and their distribution can influence social behaviour at translocation sites: lessons from a lizard
(Elsevier BV, 2014-05-09)
In a translocation programme, social interactions among released individuals can influence the tendency for the individuals to remain at the site where they have been released. Dispersal away from the region of release may ...
A contact-based social network of lizards is defined by low genetic relatedness among strongly connected individuals
(Elsevier Masson, 2014-09-19)
Social organization is widespread; even largely solitary species must organize themselves to enable contacts with mates and reduce competition with conspecifics. Although the forms of social structure can be subtle in ...
