Project Results

All of the more interesting results (photos, videos, frog calls etc) were posted on the ‘Home’ page shortly after the data was collected. This allowed the local community and anyone else interested to follow the project’s progress, as it occurred. This information is easily accessed by searching the site.

Searching this website

The information posted on the ‘Home‘ page can be searched using the ‘Categories’ drop-down menu, above. For example, selecting the ‘Birds’ category will display a list of all posts within this category. Posts for a particular month/year can also be searched using the ‘Archives’ drop-down menu.

The information contained on the various pages of this website, including the ‘Home’ page, can be searched (for words, or phrases) using the ‘Search this site’ box, at right, above the ‘Categories’ and ‘Archives’ search boxes. For example, searching for the word ‘owl’, will display a link to every post and page that contains the term ‘owl’ (not case sensitive).

Analyzing project information

Towards the end of the year (2011) we began to collate the information collected by the project and addressed some of the questions we originally set out to answer.

  • Has fauna recovery been better, or more rapid, in some areas compared to others?
  • How did the fires impact on different types of fauna eg. larger ground-dwelling mammals, hollow-dependent arboreal birds and mammals, birds of forests and open country?
  • How quickly have different animal populations recovered from the fires?
  • How many different species of fauna have been recorded in the Strath Creek-Flowerdale region since the 2009 fires?

For example, its not surprising that Wombats, that have underground refuge and are large and highly visible, were overall the most recorded species at the remote camera sites. However, we were interested to see, at the end of the study, how the recording rate of Wombats varied across the landscape and whether this could be related to the fires. Similarly, we wanted to compare the rates at which arboreal mammals were recorded in burnt and unburnt bush.
