Kangaroos and climate: an analysis of distribution

Caughley, G., Short, J., Grigg, G.C. and Nix, H. (1987) Kangaroos and climate: an analysis of distribution. Journal of Animal Ecology, 56 (3). pp. 751-761.

Abstract

Macropus giganteus occupies areas only where rainfall either has little seasonal trend or where rainfall in summer exceeds winter rainfall. M. fuliginosus is found in areas of uniform or winter rainfall. Seasonality of rainfall has little influence on the distribution of M. rufus. Instead, its distribution reflects interaction between mean annual precipitation and mean annual temperature
