Forest Prescriptions - David Lindenmayer

Researchers at The Australian National University have worked in the montane ash forests of the Central Highlands of Victoria for 30 years. The work has spanned studies of the habitat requirements and population viability of arboreal marsupials (including Leadbeater’s Possum), populations of large old trees, forest dynamics, fire dynamics, logging impacts and numerous other investigations documented in more than 165 peer-reviewed scientific articles and seven books (reviewed in Lindenmayer 2009). The prescriptions in this report are based on that body of research, together with new data from on-going research on the impacts of the 2009 fires on Leadbeater’s Possum and its habitat in montane ash forests.
