A snippet of information for those interested in reading about the 
importance of 'top order' predators in Australia and how the presence of 
such predators is likely to be contributing to the conservation of certain 
native mammals.

I can thoroughly recommend the following papers.

Glen, A. S. & Dickman, C. R. (2005) Complex interactions among mammalian 
carnivores in Australia, and their implications for wildlife management.  
Biol. Rev. 80: 387-401.
Johnson, C. N., Isaac, J. L. & Fisher, D. O. (2007) Rarity of a top 
predator triggers continent-wide collapse of mammal prey: dingoes and 
marsupials in Australia.  Proc. Roy. Soc. B. (Biological Sciences) 274:
