The Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) provides vital habitat for many species, including terrestrial species that depend on floodplain forests and woodlands. The ecological condition of floodplain forests and woodlands in the MDB is in decline due to an array of threats, including increasing frequency and severity of droughts, changed hydrologic regimes, and pressures from invasive species. Maintaining and enhancing ecosystem condition will depend on informed management decisions. We aimed to provide decision support for MDB managers by identifying priority areas for floodplain-associated terrestrial bird species.
