Farm forestry activities are increasing dramatically and farm forestry has future potential to be a major land use over much of southern Australia. While economic benefits and the likely impacts in slowing water table rise and other forms of land degradation have been examined, there is limited information on the role that farm forestry might play in the conservation of biodiversity.

This report presents a detailed case study from south-western Australia which investigates the vertebrate and invertebrate fauna found within plantations of Eucalyptus globulus (Bluegum), and provides the first detailed information on faunal use of extensive bluegum plantations.
