Résumé
Digging mammals, as ecosystem engineers, are species that can significantly alter the structure and function of ecosystems. Translocations of digging mammals may contribute to ecosystem restoration, but there is a lack of information on their ecosystem roles, whether they interact with novel ecosystem elements, and whether they alter ecosystems at landscape-scales. This thesis explores the use of translocations of Australian digging mammals to restore ecosystems through an investigation of the ecological roles of digging mammals and their interactions with native and non-native species across a range of spatial scales.
