Problems encountered in feeding microencapsulated oils to a folivorous marsupial, the common ringtail possum (Pseudocheirus peregrinus)

Lawler, I; Foley, William


In our study of interactions between marsupial folivores and Eucalyptus, we have examined the role of terpenes, including the use of bioassay experiments where terpenes are added to an artificial diet. In pursuit of greater ecological realism in these experiments, we have sought means of packaging terpenes more realistically, by using microencapsulation to simulate oil glands of leaves. We report here on a preliminary experiment with microencapsulated olive oil (intended for use as an...[Show more]
