Much more difficult for us to know the impact of dingoes, as this occurred
several thousand years ago, at some stage along with aboriginal people. We
don't know as much about what was here before. There may well have been much
species loss at that time. Also and probably far more important is the
arrival of cats and foxes has obviously occurred along with vast amounts of
habitat change created by people. Clearing and fragmentation most obviously.
This clearly has an additive impact of the difficultly of many ground living
creatures to survive predators.

Ok, dingoes, my next question, why didn't the arrival of dingoes cause the
same devastation as the arrival of foxes for small mammals/ground dwelling
Is it the cat/fox synergy?
