Eastern Australia’s temperate woodlands have been significantly cleared, with 80% of their former extent already gone, and the classically Australian woodland bird community that is inseparably bound with them disintegrating. This project will identify the most cost-effective actions for restoring the woodland bird community by harnessing and synthesising existing research activities and collecting data across a large swathe of the temperate woodland zone. We will identify both costs and effectiveness of management actions that benefit not just individual threatened bird species, but the entire woodland bird community.
