|Title:||Bird communities in remnant woodland on the upper North-west Slopes of New South Wales||Contributor(s):||Debus, Stephen J S (author); Ford, Hugh Alastair (author); Tremont, Stephen (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3421||Abstract:||Bird counts were conducted in woodland remnants of the upper North-west Slopes of New South Wales, an ornithologically little-documented area, in 1995 and 1997. A total of 120 woodland species, including 11 threatened species, was recorded in the area below 900 m elevation, from a point 100 km NNW of Armidale northwards 50 km to the Dumaresq River, thence 50 km north-west across Slopes woodland to the river at Texas (Queensland). Woodland patches >300 ha supported significantly more species than those <100 ha. Threatened and other declining species occurred mainly in large patches, although some also occurred commonly in small riverine or otherwise fertile patches; foraging guilds of small to medium sized, ground and above-ground insectivores were under-represented in small remnants. The conservation values of woodland remnants on the upper North-west Slopes are similar to those on the tablelands and inland slopes farther south, and require appropriate management to maintain avian diversity.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Zoologist, 33(4), p. 519-529||Publisher:||Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales||Place of Publication:||Mosman, NSW, Australia||ISSN:||0067-2238||Field of Research (FOR):||050202 Conservation and Biodiversity||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.une.edu.au/ers/staff-profile-doc-folders/steve-debus/debus-et-al-bird-comm-nws.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 110
