Understanding basic species population dynamics for effective control: a case study on community-led culling of the common myna (Acridotheres tristis)

Grarock, Kate; Tidemann, Chris; Wood, Jeffrey; Lindenmayer, David

Description

Population manipulation of introduced species can be difficult and many widespread eradication or reduction attempts have failed. Understanding the population dynamics of a species is essential for undertaking a successful control program. Despite this, control attempts are frequently undertaken with limited knowledge of the species population dynamics. For example, in Australia, concern over the impact of the introduced common myna (Acridotheres tristis) has led to community members culling...[Show more]
