Eby, P. (1991) Seasonal movements of grey-headed flying-foxes, Pteropus poliocephalus (Chiroptera : Pteropodidae), from two maternity camps in northern New South Wales. Wildl. Res. 18, 547.

Aim: 
To document the distance and direction that Grey-headed flying-fox adults moved from maternity camps, to determine the extent of movement among camps in the region, and to define the breeding population in the region.
Type of Study: 
Correlational
Key Results: 
Individuals from Lismore remianed within 50km of the roost, while those from Grafton undertook a large-scale migration (median = 324km)
Treatments: 
Individuals captured from two separate maternity roosts
Response: 
P. poliocephalus in northern and central N.S.W. appear to function as a single breeding population and should be managed as such.
Models: 
None
