At St Bees Island, central Queensland, during drought conditions from July 2001 to April 2003, 85% of koala deaths occurred when browse moisture fell below 51% fresh weight. Drought-induced mortality (and changing frequencies or intensities of drought due to climate change) may have a considerable effect upon this population.

Keywords: climate change, drought, Phascolarctos cinereus.
