Non-target species

The sensitivity of Australian animals to 1080 poison IX.* Comparisons between the major groups of animals, and the potential danger non-target species face from 1080-poisoning campaigns.

The sensitivity of a species to 1080 poison is difficult to predict from toxicity data for other, closely related species. LD50S of practical use for evaluating the risk species might […]

Preliminary field assessment of a cabergoline baiting campaign for reproductive control of red fox (Vulpes vulpes).

The use of poison baiting to control foxes is impractical in urban areas and some wildlife reserves because of hazards to non-target animals. More acceptable methods of fox control in […]

Bait uptake by free living brush-tailed phascogales Phascogale tapoatafa and other non-target mammals during simulated buried fox baiting

Field trials were undertaken in box-ironbark woodland at Puckapunyal Military Area (PMA) in central Victoria between January 2000 and April 2001 to assess bait uptake by the brush-tailed phascogale (Phascogale […]

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 […]
