Sensitivity of some Australian animals to sodium fluoroacetate (1080): additional species and populations, and some ecological considerations

The sensitivity to fluoroacetate (1080) of a number of species of rodents and dasyurids with and without evolutionary exposure to fluoroacetate-bearing vegetation was determined. Rattus fuscipes, and species of Pseudomys […]
