Woodland birds number almost 200 species across their range in temperate and subtropical Australia. As a community, they are in serious decline, due to many threats. We reviewed the scientific evidence evaluating the effectiveness of conservation interventions at improving the condition of Australian woodland bird communities. After screening over 5,500 potentially relevant studies, we compiled a database of the 141 studies that tested the effect of 26 different conservation management actions on one or more species of Australian woodland bird. The comprehensive database that we have collated from our review allows managers to find and use relevant scientific evidence to inform their conservation decisions.
