  1. NP = not present; ND = known to be present but not detected on tracking plots; BP = believed present but not detected on tracking plots; NR = present and detected on tracking plots but not recorded; RE = Mostly Varanus spp. and reported in [25]; *All reptiles except for Varanus spp. (i.e. predominately agamidae and skincidae); ^All dasyurids and rodents except for hopping-mice; N surveys per site are given in Table 2.
