Facts about the yellow-bellied glider

"Where Yellow Bellied Gliders are located in this way, 15 feed trees must be retained within a 200m radius.

Abstract The yellow-bellied glider Petaurus australis is an arboreal marsupial that has an extensive but patchy distribution in native eucalypt forests along the east coast of Australia.

Behavior Petaurus australis is an extremely active, arboreal, nocturnal glider.

Brush-tailed rock wallabies and yellow-bellied gliders are amongst the 28 mammal species found here.

For example, despite its widespread distribution along the eastern coast of Australia, the Yellowbellied Glider Petaurus australis is classified as vulnerable because it occurs in low densities and the majority of its habitat in southern Queensland is threatened by land use practices.

For example, in the forests of Australia, the Yellow-bellied Glider (Petaurus australis) is now confined to those places where there are large areas of old growth forest (Incoll 1995) and it is absent from wood production forests where only very small patches of this age-class now remain (Lindenmayer and Possingham 1995).

For example, in the Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans) forests of Central Victoria, the Yellow-bellied Glider (Petaurus australis) is now confined to those places where there are large areas of old growth forest (Incoll, 1995) and it is absent from wood production forests where only very small patches of this age-class now remain (Lindenmayer, 1995).

General Species Information The Yellow-bellied Glider is a gliding possum of the Family Petauridae, and Genus Petaurus (Russell, 1983).

Movement: The yellow-bellied glider is a very agile climber, will often run along the underside of the branch and hang by its hind legs.

Population Ecology) The yellow-bellied glider Petaurus australis is an arboreal marsupial that has an extensive but patchy distribution in native eucalypt forests along the east coast of Australia.

PY: 1994 AB: The yellow-bellied glider, Petaurus australis, is possibly the most vocal of all marsupials but little attention has been given to the functional significance of its calling behavior.

Secondly, the yellow-bellied glider is strictly arboreal and unlikely to cross open ground.

The yellow-bellied glider is the largest of the Australian gliders, with the average length of head and body 280 mm and tail 433 mm.

This study confirms the dependence of the yellow-bellied glider in north Queensland on the sap of the red stringybark (Eucalyptus resinifera) and that conservation of the yellow-bellied glider is intimately associated with the management of this tree species.

Three rare possums pose a costly dilemmaBy Robert MessengerSaturday, 17 November 2001THREE tiny yellow-bellied gliders are perched in the way of the multi-million-dollar charcoal-burning plant proposed for Mossy Point near, Broulee.

Yellow-bellied gliders are noisy and sociable, unlike the greater glider, which is neither.

Yellow-bellied gliders are restricted to tall, mature eucalypt forests in temperate to subtropical eastern Australia in regions of high rainfall.
