Survey/Project Name: JULIA BIGNALL Honours Project - Small Mammal Trapping
Abstract: Small mammal trapping was undertaken at Werta Wert Lagoon, Chowilla Station and Thookle Thookle Lagoon, Calperum Station, within the Bookmark Biosphere Reserve, SA. This was undertaken as part of an Honours Research Project through the University of Adelaide. The focus of the research was the habitat use and movements of carnivorous marsupials, Planigale gilesi, Sminthopsis crassicaudata and Sminthopsis murina. Of particular focus was the response of Planigale gilesi and Sminthopsis crassicaudata to flooding of the lakebed habitats. Pitfall trapping was undertaken between 2000 and 2001, when the lagoon beds were dry, during flooding, and after flooding. A significant number of fauna mammal species were recorded during the survey, as well as several other vertebrate fauna species.
