Use prescribed burning on Australian sclerophyll forest
A replicated study in 1999 in 36 sclerophyll forest sites in southeast Queensland, Australia (Smyth et al. 2002), at found that two of the eleven hollow-nesting species analysed (brown treecreeper Climacteris picumnus, little lorikeet Climacteris picumnus) were positively associated with more frequent prescribed burning. No species were negatively associated with more frequent prescribed burning.
