Abstract

Melbourne has an extensive canopy of street trees that provides an important urban amenity and contributes both to human health and wellbeing and as food and habitat for non-human animals. There is some evidence that the composition of Melbourne’s street trees is likely to change as a result of climate change (Kendal et al. 2011). However, we know little about what these changes may be, and what this could mean for Melbourne’s human, avian and mammal inhabitants.
