This study was funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project DP0667029: "Beyond discrete landscape metrics: spatial analysis tools and surface textural measures for quantifying gradients in landscape structure". We are grateful for the help of numerous landholders in granting us access to their properties for the survey: the Bodes (Woura Park and Timaru) and Haydons (Penrice). Michiala Bowen (The University of Queensland) assisted greatly with vegetation surveys and Figure design. Eric Vanderduys and Justin Perry (CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems) provided valuable assistance with the fauna surveys, which was funded by CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems and the Australian Government Natural Heritage Trust.
