Forestry SA and Hancocks Victorian Plantations allowed us access to field sites. We thank Charlma Phillips (Forestry SA) and Jenny Pena (HVP) for their assistance in arranging this access. The forester, and former professional cellist, Bruno Turrini (Forestry SA) provided enormous and enthusiastic logistical assistance at Wirrabara. Theresa Jones and two anonymous reviewers provided comments on the manuscript, and other members of the Animal Behaviour and Evolution Group at the University of Melbourne had useful input and ideas. Funding for this study was from the Australian Research Council (MRES), the Canadian Natural Sciences and Research Council (TML), and travel grants from the University of Melbourne Department of Zoology, and the Western Forest Genetics Association (Canada and U. S. A.).
