The Australasian Vertebrate Pest Conference, held in Sydney 20-23 June 2011, is the 15th in a series recommended by the Vertebrate Pests Committee (VPC). The conference is held triennially, with the last conference convened in Darwin in June 2008. The 2011 AVPC was organised in conjunction with the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre and NSW Primary Industries. The theme of this conference “Security from the impact of vertebrate pest animals” is the vision of VPC’s Australian Pest Animal Strategy (2007) which provides a national framework for the management of pest animals.
The role of VPC is to provide coordination in policy, planning and overall strategies which address pest animal problems. Through these triennial conferences, VPC aims to increase the exchange of ideas, knowledge and innovations of all those involved in pest animal management in Australia and New Zealand as well as internationally.
This volume is a pre-conference compilation of working papers. The contents are not peer reviewed and apart from lay-out changes, have been printed as received from submitting authors.
