Dear Robert,

I suggest that you contact A/Prof Hugh Ford of the Department of Zoology, 
University of 
New England. At the RAOU's Southern Hemisphere Ornithologists Conference in 
1996, Hugh presented a very good overview of the effects of habitat 
degradation and clearance on the breeding success of birds.

Contact details can be obtained by consulting the 'Australian Bird Research 
on the RAOU's home page  <>. There are 
a number 
of other people listed in this directory who may also be able to assist you.

Dr Stephen Ambrose 
Research and Conservation Manager.

Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union (RAOU),
Australian Bird Research Centre,
415 Riversdale Road,
Hawthorn East,
VIC   3123.
