The New South Wales South Western Slopes bioregion has been significantly altered by agricultural development and is likely to experience additional significant impacts as a result of anthropogenic climate change. A simple inventory survey of the vertebrate fauna of Currawananna State Forest, a small woodland remnant on the Murrumbidgee River in the south of the bioregion, over the period 2002-2010 identified 172 vertebrate fauna species. This included three species of national conservation concern (the Trout Cod Maccullochella macquariensis, Murray Cod Maccullochella peelii and Superb Parrot Polytelis swainsonii) and another 16 species (5 fishes, 8 birds and 3 mammals) of state-level concern, as well as diverse frog, reptile, woodland and wetland bird and microchiropteran bat assemblages. This study demonstrates that even small remnants play an important role in supporting biodiversity in agricultural landscapes. Source
