Macropod studies at Wallaby Creek. 4. Home range and movements of the red-necked wallaby

C. N. Johnson

Australian Wildlife Research 14(2) 125 - 132
Published: 1987


Red-necked wallabies were observed to live in small home ranges, the locations of which changed little from season to season and from year to year. Home ranges were situated in places where open areas, used for feeding, lay close to the cover offered by dense vegetation and gullies. The home ranges of medium-sized males tended to be peripheral to areas preferred by females, and by larger and smaller males. Females tended to shift their home ranges towards the edges of large beds of cover as their infants left the pouch. The home ranges of males were larger than those of females, and body size and homerange size were positively correlated among males. Females used larger home ranges in winter than in summer.
