Abstract

The number of bird species in Pinus radiata plantations aged between 8 and 31 years
and in native forests in Tasmania during a year is recorded.
The oldest plantations had a slightly greater number of species than the younger
ones because after thinning of the pines there was some regeneration of ground cover
which provided another habitat. Most species, however, fed chiefly on the trunks and
foliage of the pines. The number of species was greater in the native forests and was
consistent in the five plots surveyed. Only one species was found nesting in the pine
plots.
