Processed microphysical profiles of convective cloud scenes from satellite over ATTO

AVIHAY EFRAIM, Oliver Lauer, Daniel Rosenfeld, Ramon Braga, Marco Franco, Leslie Kremper, Yannian Zhu, Ulrich Pöschl, Christopher Pöhlker, Meinrat Andreae, Paulo Artaxo, Alessandro De Araújo & Mira Pohlker
We present a new approach of analyzing and interpreting vertical profiles of cloud microstructure obtained by satellite remote sensing. The method is based on a spectral bin microphysics adiabatic parcel model and aims to elucidate the effects of aerosols on the evolution of convective clouds and related microphysical processes, including the activation of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), the growth of cloud droplets, and the formation of precipitation. Characteristic features in the vertical profiles of effective...

Koala greater glider detection histories: Richmond Range NP

Ross Goldingay
Multi-year investigations of population dynamics are fundamental to threatened species conservation. We used multi-season occupancy based on spotlight surveys to investigate dynamic occupancy of the koala and the greater glider over an 8-year period that encompassed a severe drought in year 6. We combined our occupancy estimates with literature estimates of density to estimate the population sizes of these species within the focal conservation reserve. Both species showed substantial yearly variation in the probability of...

Isotopic niche overlap between sympatric Australian snubfin and humpback dolphins

Guido J. Parra, Zachary Wojtkowiak, Katharina J. Peters & Daniele Cagnazzi
Ecological niche theory predicts the coexistence of closely related species is promoted by resource partitioning and leads to the use of different ecological niches. Australian snubfin (Orcaella heinsohni) and humpback (Sousa sahulensis) dolphins live in sympatry throughout most of their range in northern Australia. We compared stable isotope ratios of carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) in their skin to investigate resource partitioning between these ecologically similar species. Skin samples were collected from live Australian snubfin...

Use of road underpasses by mammals and a monitor lizard in eastern Australia and consideration of the prey-trap hypothesis

Ross Goldingay
Road networks continue to expand globally with predictable effects on ecological systems. Research into the effectiveness of road underpasses and overpasses for wildlife has been concentrated in North America and Europe. In Australia, most studies of underpasses have been of relatively short duration and without reference sites to give context to the measured rates of use. We studied 5–7 road underpasses at two locations in eastern Australia over 2–3 years, comparing camera trap detections of...
