Landscape based optimisation of vertebrate pest management strategies

    Project: Other

    Description

    Population densities, rates of increase and rates of recolonisation of vertebrate pest species occur non-uniformly in landscapes. They depend on local habitat attributes, habitat attributes of adjacent areas, variability of food resources between seasons and year and population densities of predators or competitors. This project will examine the potential for increase in cost efficiency of controlling pest in localised hot spots.
