Feral goats on Raoul Island. I. Effect of control methods on their density, distribution and productivity

Goats were liberated on Raoul Island early in the 19th century. Attempts to eliminate the goats commence in 1937 and have accounted for at least 15 000 animals. Since 1972, when annual hunting expeditions began, both the number of goats and the area over which they range have steadily declined and the herd is now […]

Wild Dog Policy

Wild dogs, including dingoes, may cause substantial losses to livestock. They may also have significant impacts upon the distribution and abundance of native wildlife. However, there is an expectation that the dingo should be conserved because it arrived in Australia prior to European settlement. Furthermore, wild dogs in general may play an important role in […]

Factors influencing the spatial distribution of introduced birds on arable farms in New Zealand

In New Zealand, the agricultural and horticultural industries view many introduced bird species as significant crop pests. In the arable sector, for example, introduced passerine species, such as house sparrows and greenfinches, cause substantial damage to high-value speciality crops, e.g., radish seed. Bird control techniques currently used by farmers such as scarers, shooting, repellents and […]

Distribution, biology and likely impacts of the introduced redfin perch (Perca fluviatilis) (Percidae) in Western Australia

Within Western Australia, Perca fluviatilis is restricted to the south-western corner and is found in the Swan, Murray, Harvey, Collie, Capel, Carbunup, Margaret, Blackwood, Donnelly and Warren river systems. Age data suggest it was released into Big Brook Dam (Warren River) in 1992 or 1993, where it has since played a role in eliminating the […]

Distribution and density estimates for urban foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in Melbourne: implications for rabies control

The distribution and density of red fox populations was investigated in metropolitan Melbourne from 1990 to 1993. Distribution data were collected from sightings reported by members of the public, from spotlight and active den surveys, and from trapping and road kills. Archival data suggested that resident populations of foxes have been present within the inner […]

Natural histories of Australia’s stick-nest rats, genus Leporillus (Rodentia : Muridae)

The former distributions of stick-nest rats (Leporillus conditor and L. apicalis), both extinct on the Australian mainland since about the 1930s, were determined from literature reports, museum records, interview responses and field surveys of key areas. Population parameters were determined for L. conditor from early literature accounts, studies of remnant stick-nests in caves, a three-year […]

A new trap-catch index of patchiness in animal distribution

Researchers and managers commonly use catch rates on trap-transects as an index of abundance for trappable wildlife species. We describe a method whereby the data collected from such surveys can be further analysed to obtain information on the patchiness of the trapped species’ distribution on those transects. For certain applications, such as the management of […]

The origin and history of the British fauna

Considers the Irish stoat a representative of an earlier invasion that survived the last glaciation, whereas the British stoat is derived from a later invasion so is not distinct from the European subsp. Stoats on Jura could be a hybrid. In large populations, new subspecific characters do not evolve in
