 Tasmania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the 1970s, opposition to the construction of the Lake Pedder impoundment led to the formation of the world's first green party, the United Tasmania Group.
The anti-dam sentiment was shared by many Australians outside Tasmania, and proved a factor in the election of the Hawke Labor government in 1983, which halted construction of the dam.
Since the 1980s the environmental focus has shifted to old growth logging, which has proved a highly divisive issue.

Redstarts are a group of small Old World birds.

 OW Flycatchers and chats
The Muscicapidae is a huge family of smallish Old World passerines that includes not only some of the 'flycatchers' of the Old World, but also a large group of 'chats' and allies, of which Gray Bushchat (left) is just one example.
Except for the Northern Wheatear and a few Bluethroats in Alaska, all muscicapids are Old World species, and they span a diverse range of habitats for the driest upland steppes to the forest floor of the darkest jungles.

Morphological and Ecological Evolution in Old and New World Flycatchers
Third, using multivariate discrimination and cluster analysis on a morphological data set of five flycatcher clades, I address whether there is broad scale ecomorphological convergence among flycatcher clades and if morphology predicts a course measure of habitat preference.
Phylogenetic constraints to morphological evolution are not universal throughout the history of flycatcher evolution.
