Habitat preferences for small mammals in coastal and arid regions of Australia have been well documented. Correlations have been shown between the diversity of the habitat in terms of plants species diversity and vegetation structure, and small mammal abundance and richness. However, there is also conflicting data that suggests habitat preferences for species may differ considerably from region to region.

The aim of this study was to examine species distributions and habitat correlates for small ground-dwelling mammals across five different habitat types occuring in Ravensbourne National Park and nearby Nature Reserve, south-east Queensland.
