Wildlife ecology & management

Wildlife Ecology and Management (WEM) Team staff are focussed on protecting native ecosystems and primary industry through improved understanding of pest responses to management, and the role of pests as disease carriers.

This understanding is used to guide development of better pest management regimes through new and improved management strategies, tools and techniques - ranging from biological control to traps and toxins.

Our research on pests and diseases and pest management covers marsupials (possums and wallabies), mustelids (stoats and ferrets), rodents (rats and mice), ungulates (deer, pigs and thar), birds (starlings, rooks and mynas), lagomorphs (rabbits and hares), and diseases as problems (bovine tuberculosis, avian malaria, murine typhus) and as biocontrols (rabbit haemorrhagic disease).
