Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Apostlebird Struthidea cinerea is shown to have greatly increased its range in all states in which it occurs and its range is still expanding. Despite this, a small population found in south-western Victoria and south-eastern South Australia has become extinct. This species may have had some recent declines in some localised populations, but at this stage no areas need to be managed specifically for its conservation.
