    Diana O Fisher
    School of Botany and Zoology, Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 0200, Australia
    Trends Ecol Evol 19:391-8. 2004
    ..Correlates of vulnerability to conservation problems are often taxon, region and threat specific, so models must be narrowly focused to be of maximum practical use...

    Diana O Fisher
    Division of Botany and Zoology, Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 0200, Australia
    Proc Biol Sci 270:1801-8. 2003
    ..We conclude that recent anthropogenic changes have been profound enough to affect species on a continent-wide scale, regardless of their intrinsic biology...

    Diana O Fisher
    School of Botany and Zoology, Australian National University, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory 0200, Australia
    Nature 444:89-92. 2006
    ..The threefold increase in offspring survival is not negated by a decline in maternal lifespan and is too large to be offset by an equivalent decline in the reproductive performance of surviving offspring...
  4. pmc Rarity of a top predator triggers continent-wide collapse of mammal prey: dingoes and marsupials in Australia
    Christopher N Johnson
    School of Tropical Biology, James Cook University, Townsville, Queensland, Australia
    Proc Biol Sci 274:341-6. 2007
    ..This is evidence of a crucial role of top predators in maintaining prey biodiversity at large scales in terrestrial ecosystems and suggests that many remaining Australian mammals would benefit from the positive management of dingoes...
