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 [...]
We tested non-invasive genetic methods for estimating the abundance of marten Martes americana using baited glue-patch traps to pull hair samples from individual animals. We divided our 800-km(2) study area into 3 x 3 km cells and put one hair trap in each cell. We trapped 309 sites for an average of 15 days each [...]
1. Drainage culverts are ubiquitous features in road corridors, yet little is known about the efficacy of culverts for increasing road permeability and habitat connectivity for terrestrial wildlife. Culvert use by small- and medium-sized mammals was investigated along roads in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. An array of culvert types was sampled varying in dimensions, [...]
