The recovery of populations of bush rat Rattus fuscipes in forest fragments following major population reduction
1. Understanding the recovery of populations after disturbance is critical to many aspects of applied population management, ranging from the development of conservation strategies to pest control. We used a controlled and replicated field experiment linked to a genetic study to examine the rate and mechanism of population recovery of the Australian bush rat after severe experimental population reduction. 2. The main factors examined were perturbation treatment (removal of animals, removal...[Show more]
