- ... Globally, many bird species that rely on native woodland or forest environments are declining due to vegetation clearing for livestock pastures and cereal cropping. In many landscapes, woodland remnants are restricted to waterways and roadsides in narrow, sometimes degraded patches, and not all patches can necessarily provide the resources required to support bird populations.

- ... Land management practices that increase food production are needed to match demand from a growing global population. Adoption of these practices needs to be balanced by potential adverse consequences such as nutrient losses and production of greenhouse gases. We previously demonstrated that pasture soils irrigated during summer-dry conditions had significantly less soil carbon than adjacent unirri ...
