Introduced predators are a serious threat to New Zealand’s indigenous fauna. Reducing the abundance of predators is the main method used for protection, but it is not a guarantee for […]

Secondary poisoning of stoats (Mustela erminea) at low mouse (Mus musculus) abundance in a New Zealand Nothofagus forest

Two different brodifacoum (Talon 20 P™) poisoning regimes effectively killed 100% of resident radio-tagged stoats (Mustela erminea) by secondary poisoning in a New Zealand Nothofagus forest when mice (Mus musculus) […]

Trends in the numbers of red kangaroos and emus on either side of the South Australian dingo fence: evidence for predator regulation?

Most of Australia’s sheep rangelands are enclosed by a dingo-proof fence. Within these rangelands, where dingoes (Canis familiaris) are rare, red kangaroos (Macropus rufus) are considered to be food limited […]

Secondary poisoning of stoats (Mustela erminea) in a South Island podocarp forest, New Zealand: implications for conservation

This study tested the efficacy of secondary poisoning using Talon 20 P™ (20 ppm brodifacoum) in bait stations for killing predators in a New Zealand podocarp forest. Nine of 10 […]
