Australia's tree-kangaroos: current issues in their conservation



Australia's tree-kangaroos: current issues in their conservation



Biological Conservation 87(1): 1-12



Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo (Dendrolagus lumholtzi) and Bennett's tree-kangaroo (D. bennettianus) are the largest arboreal folivores in Australia and are both restricted to the tropical rain forests and adjacent forest communities in North Queensland. D. bennettianus occurs within a relatively small area (approx. 2000 kmsuperscript 2) of the wet tropics but most of this area is protected so the conservation status of the tree-kangaroo is considered moderately safe despite its rarity.
