Summary: 
Conceptual model of interactions that might be expected in the presence of the dingo (Canis dingo), shown by solid arrows, in a rangeland environment. Numbers in parentheses represent the predicted sequence of events. For example, if dingoes suppress large herbivores such as kangaroos and emus, then grass and herb biomass would be expected to increase. If dingoes also suppress mesopredators such as the European red fox and feral cat, small mammals (e.g. mice), reptiles (e.g. goannas) and birds (e.g. parrots) should increase, although this response may take longer to manifest than the response of vegetation. Invertebrates may also respond to improved vegetation condition and contribute to soil health. However, the strength of all interactions may be influenced by the extent of rainfall and fires (dotted arrows). This example, taken from Newsome et al. (2015), focused on interactions expected in Sturt National Park, New South Wales, but should be applicable to rangeland environments more broadly. Reprinted with permission.
