45 hectares of Grassy Dry Forest near Lancefield containing habitat for the Brush-tailed Phascogale
Red-tailed Phascogale Phascogale
calura is considered regionally extinct, Leadbeater's Possum Gymnobelideus lead-beateri, Squirrel Glider and Spot-tailed Quoll Dasyurus maculatus are endangered and Brush-tailed Phascogale Phascogale
tapoatafa and Greater Glider Petauroides volans are vulnerable.
Old trees with hollows, trees frequently used by goannas, possums, sugar gliders, yellow-footed antechinus, or brush-tailed phascogale
, the movements of small birds, all provide segues into other stories about the forest.
A reduced rainfall will reduce the food supplies, particularly blossom in flowering trees and hence the breeding success of rare and threatened species such as Regent Honeyeater, Turquoise and Swift Parrot, Peregrine Falcon, the Brush-tailed Phascogale
and Squirrel Glider (Crase and Clarke, 2010).
2) Grey is particularly interested in threatened species such as the Squirrel Glider, Brush-tailed Phascogale
, Regent Honeyeater, Swift Parrot, Pink-Tailed Worm-Lizard and the Woodland Blind Snake, who all live in South Australia's Box-Ironbark country.

Failure of glucocorticoid feedback during breeding in the male red-tailed phascogale Phascogale

This latest funding through the Wheatbelt Natural Resource Management Inc (Wheatbelt NRM) Community Bushcare grants will help 49 farmers conserve priority habitat and protect some of WAs most threatened species including the red-tailed phascogale
and the malleefowl.
Home-range use by the brushtailed phascogale
tapoatafa) (Marsupialia) in high-quality, spatially limited habitat.
The results were compiled into a Mission Phascogale
report presented to Dr Goodall when she visited the area last year.
Roadsides can represent high quality habitat for woodland mammals because they often host a high density of large, old, hollow-bearing trees--a critical resource for woodland fauna, including threatened species such as the Brush-tailed Phascogale Phascogale
tapoatafa and Squirrel Glider Petaurus norfolcensis.
Grants provided under the first round have been used to help a range of threatened species including the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, Mountain Pygmy-possum, Brush-tailed Phascogale
, Baw Baw Frog, Helmeted Honeyeater, Hooded Plover, Forest Redgum Grassy Woodland community and multiple native orchid species.
