The project: “Micro-Habitat Use by Two Species of Dasyurids in the Arid Zone” studies the habitat use of Sminthopsis macroura and Sminthopsis crassicaudata. From previous studies, it appears that each species prefers a different microhabitat within the larger landscapes.
This project will look at the movement of individuals once they are placed in an area where they have no prior knowledge and see how they then use the habitat. It will also examine the prey species available in the preferred micro-habitats.
