Impacts of regionally significant invasive vertebrate pests, excluding fish (Indicator Status: For Advice)

Ideally, the impact of pest animals should be measured in terms of damage to valued resources rather than in terms of pest animal numbers or population density. However, due to the difficulty and expense of measuring pest animal impact (particularly long-term effects caused by herbivorous pest animals), pest animal population density will usually be measured and related to population density and environmental damage where pest density:resource damage relationships are known for particular situations.
