Harnessing ‘pros’ while mitigating ‘cons’ of top-predators remains a key management challenge, particularly outside reserves in agro-ecosystems. In this study, long-term (1972–2008) and broad-scale (250,000 km 2 ) datasets were used to explore co-relationships between rainfall, kangaroo abundance, beef-cattle calf production and… CONTINUE READING
