Reproductive biology

The degree of reproductive synchrony and seasonality in dasyurids is associated with latitude and climatic predictability. Reproductive seasonality is known for approximately half of species with an information bias on a few temperate and structure for hunting. Even the largest species require dense vegetation or crevices as refuge from mammalian and raptorial predators. Tasmanian devils cover many miles (kilometers) in a night's foraging and show a preference for habitats with an open understory or routes through dense vegetation.
