It is suggested that domestic cats will exploit wild habitats but that their potential impact will have both positive (predation of introduced pest species) and negative (occasional direct predation) effects on native wildlife.
Identification of weta foraging on brodifacoum bait and the risk of secondary poisoning for birds on Quail Island, Canterbury, New Zealand
The results indicated that all the 17 bird species assessed are more susceptible to primary poisoning than secondary poisoning and access to brodifacoum bait by non-target bird species needs to be minimised.
The Effectiveness of Riparian ‘Restoration’ on Water Quality—A Case Study of Lowland Streams in Canterbury, New Zealand
In New Zealand, around half of the lowland water bodies do not meet water quality standards, primarily due to widespread changes in land use. Riparian restoration has been occurring in New Zealand…
Innovative developments for long-term mammalian pest control.
Recent progress and trends in a number of areas of research aimed to achieve long-term population suppression or eradication of mammalian pest species are discussed, emerging from research being conducted in New Zealand.
Early field experience with microencapsulated zinc phosphide paste for possum ground control in New Zealand
It is demonstrated that experienced contractors can get good kills using MZP and a refinement of best practice techniques could further improve control efficacy.
Development of a long-life bait for control of stoats
This report originated from work carried out under Department of Conservation investigation no.3435.
A comparison of horizontal versus vertical camera placement to detect feral cats and mustelids
This study aimed to determine the optimal camera alignment (horizontal or vertical) for detecting feral cats and mustelids in New Zealand and found that horizontally oriented cameras captured approximately 1.5 times as many images of the target species compared with vertically oriented cameras, and also detected more non-target animals.
Differences in brushtail possum home-range characteristics among sites of varying habitat and population density
It is highlighted that the home-range characteristics of possums can vary among populations, depending on habitat and/or population density.
Improving techniques for the Waxtag® possum ( Trichosurus vulpecula ) monitoring index
To manage brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) accurate estimates of abundance are essential. Direct counts are not feasible for large populations and index techniques are normally employed. A…
