Our team of expert ecologists care deeply about increasing people’s understanding of our fragile environment. These are their contributions to the scientific knowledge base on Australia’s diverse and multifaceted wildlife:

Kutt, A., Eddie, C. and Johnson, R. (2003). Eastern range extension of Pseudomys hermannsburgensis in Queensland. Australian Zoologist 32(2): 252 – 256.

This paper describes new locality and habitat data for the sandy inland mouse Pseudomys hermannsburgensis at the eastern limits of its range in Queensland, including at Culgoa Floodplain National Park.

Eddie, C. (2002). Australian King-parrot Alisterus scapularis eating Silver Elkhorn Fern Platycerium veitchii. Sunbird 32(1):22-23.

Two Australian king parrots were observed eating the base fronds of Silver Elkhorn Ferns at Palmgrove National Park in central Queensland during 2001. Ferns had not previously been reported as a food source for king parrots.

Eddie, C. & Oakwood, M. (2002). Southerly range extension for Common Rock-rat Zyzomys argurus (Rodentia: Muridae) in Queensland. Memoirs of the Queensland Museum 48(1): 154.

A common rock-rat Zyzomys argurus was captured in a cage trap at the Mount Moffatt section of Carnarvon National Park in May 2000, representing the first record of the species for the Carnarvon Range and a southerly range extension in Queensland by 200 kilometres.

Eddie, C. (2001) Spotted Bowerbird Chlamydera maculata observed eating flower heads of Acacia salicina. Sunbird 31(1): 23-24.

This note describes a previously unreported food source (Acacia flower heads) for the spotted bowerbird near Roma, southern inland Queensland.

Eddie, C., Johnson, R. & Young, A. (2000). Bush-hen at Mount Moffatt section, Carnarvon National Park, south central Queensland. Sunbird 30(2): 45-47.

This note describes and discusses a sighting of a bush-hen at the Mount Moffatt section of Carnarvon National Park in southern inland Queensland during January 1999. This is the first record of a bush-hen from the Carnarvon Range and is one of the few reports of this species from inland Queensland.

Johnson, R. & Eddie, C. (2000). A Pied Heron at Roma, south central Queensland. Sunbird 30(2): 42-44.
