The effect of rabbit population control programmes on the impact of rabbit haemorrhagic disease in south-eastern Australia

1. The effect of rabbit population density on transmission of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is a critical aspect of disease ecology for rabbit control and rabbit conservation. We examined the interaction between rabbit control and spread of RHDV and a non-pathogenic calicivirus (bCV) in Australian wild rabbit populations, and reviewed existing recommendations for control […]

Capacity of Management Plans for Aquatic Invasive Species to Integrate Climate Change

The consequences of climate change will affect aquatic ecosystems, including aquatic invasive species (AIS) that are already affecting these ecosystems. Effects on AIS include range shifts and more frequent overwintering of species. These effects may create new challenges for AIS management. We examined available U.S. state AIS management plans to assess each program’s capacity to […]
