Piggott, Maxine; wilson, Rebecca; Banks, Samuel; Marks, Clive A.; Gigliotti , Frank; Taylor, Andrea C.

Description

Carnivorous predators are difficult to detect using conventional survey methods, especially at low levels of abundance. The introduced red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Australia is monitored to determine the effectiveness of control programs, but assessing population parameters such as abundance and recruitment is difficult. We carried out a feasibility study to determine the effectiveness of using faecal DNA analysis methods to identify individual foxes and to assess abundance before and after...[Show more]
