Fine if we don't give a fig about the 3000 odd species of invertebrates we might find in an old Eucalypt. Yes the birds might have altered their diets to include exotics but planting exotic is not about increasing biodiversity but rather limiting it. You are not going to find an Imperial Hairstreak in your backyard if you plant exotics.
