A capture-status alarm system was developed to be used in conjunction with a humane snare device used for control of wild canids in Victoria. The alarm unit transmits a unique identity code as well as indicating the capture status of the snare. Large numbers of alarm units can be allocated to a single frequency as […]
Over 400 landholders on central and western Eyre Peninsula, South Australia, are involved in the West Coast Integrated Pest Management Program, a Natural Heritage Trust-funded program which is managed by a partnership of four state and regional agencies. Central to the philosophy and success of the program is a coordinated, landscape scale approach to pest […]
This Landcare Note gives advice on techniques for monitoring rabbits.
The National Feral Animal Control Program (NFACP) has been established under the Australian Government’s Natural Heritage Trust to develop and implement, in cooperation with State, Territory and Local Governments, a program to reduce the damage to agriculture caused by pest animals. The focus of NFACP is applied research/demonstration projects which are likely to have a […]
1. Trapping and hunting records are frequently used as an index of animal abundance. This study demonstrates that these records can be misleading if sampling effort is not controlled for. 2. Mean numbers of stoats Mustela erminea and weasels M. nivalis trapped by British gamekeepers have been decreasing since 1975 and 1961 respectively, giving rise […]
Tracking indices collected once a season from 30 sites using DOC standard protocol. In podocarp/kauri forests where stoats were controlled, indices of rat abundance higher and of mouse, lower. Good calibrations of tunnel indices for rodents and mustelids against trapping indices.
The characteristics of the guard hairs of all the mustelids in Hungary and Vulpes vulpes and Felis silvestris were examined for diagnostic characters. The analysis of hair samples taken from guts, scats, burrows, nests and bait sites can serve as an casy and quick method for faunistic research. The difficulties of hair determination are the […]
