  1. Use fire suppression/control

    A before-and-after study in Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve (4,637 ha), Western Australia, Australia (Smith 1996), found that the local population of noisy scrub-bird Atrichornis clamosus increased from 45 to 189 singing males over a period of 25 years following the implementation of fire prevention measures from 1970 to 1994, which excluded wildfires. The population also expanded outwards from its initial stronghold to colonise new areas.
