Aspects of the ecology of the common myna (Acridotheres tristis)

The predicted future distribution, habitat selection and interspecific competition of the Common Myna was investigated in this study. The potential distribution of the species was modelled using the BIOCLIM computer modelling package. Mynah abundance was found to increase with the age of a suburban habitat. Mynas were also found to significantly select habitats with a decreasing percentage of native vegetation. There was no significant correlation between Starling and Silver Gull abundance with the Common Myna. There was a significant positive correlation between the abundance of the Australian Magpie-lark and that of the Myna.
