    Wallabies were apparently not a significant threat until the winter 2000 when drought resulted in an increased browsing pressure.

    This drought reduced food sources for swamp wallabies; increasing browsing pressure on Zieria buxijugum with the effect that the number of plants 1 m high decreased by at least 82 and possibly up to 95 .
