At the Bombala site, gliders displayed a marked seasonal
variation in the use of their food resources. Sap, arthropods, honeydew and
manna were predominantly exploited by gliders during some months but were
virtually absent from the diet during others (see Fig. 2). For example, E.
viminalis sap was the main constituent in the diet during January 1984 but
was not used again until April 1985. This pattern of seasonality is in
agreement with that of other researchers in south-eastern Australia and
appears to be largely determined by the abundance and seasonal availability
of food resources. It appears, based on the limited data of food item abundance,
that all items tend to vary seasonally in their availability, but although they
may be quite productive, they are often patchily dispersed.
