Wildlife Damage Control Principles for the Management of Damage by Vertebrate Pests
Wildlife can cause problems worldwide - in conservation, agriculture, forestry and fisheries, as
well as to human and animal health and safety in rural and urban areas. For this reason, wildlife in
affected areas can be defined as pests, and forms of control sought to limit and prevent damage.
In looking at solutions by identifying and using common principles in the assessment and control
of pest damage this book focuses on controlling damage, rather than the animal itself. The book
demonstrates ecological theories and shows how they are relevant to biodiversity conservation and
other topics, and how they can be evaluated in studies of wildlife damage control.
