This project was funded by a grant from NSW Industry-Lands and Forestry. Data and information used here includes that compiled within the Interim (three-year) Environmental Impact Assessment for the Dorrigo Management Area and Joint Old Growth Forest Project 'Working Papers', collected by an extensive field team from the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service and State Forests of NSW. We thank all those involved in collecting and managing the original field data, Ernst Kemmerer for assisting with the Dorrigo dataset and John Ball of the New South Wales Rural Fire Service for providing information on the timber harvesting history of the study areas. We also thank Fabiano Ximenes, Leroy Gonsalves, Traecey Brassil, two anonymous reviewers and the managing and associate editors for their discussions and comments that greatly improved the manuscript.
