About this book

Pest animals are but one of many factors that influence the desired outcome from managing natural resource based systems, whether for production or conservation purposes. Others include diseases, weeds, financial resources, weather and fire management. To be effective, an integrated and systematic approach is required, and the principles and strategic approach outlined in Managing Australia's Pest Animals can also be used to plan and manage the damage due to other factors.

Managing Australia's Pest Animals includes case studies of successful and unsuccessful pest management strategies and covers a range of topics, including the history of pest management, current best practice principles, and guidelines for planning and applying strategic pest management approaches to effectively reduce pest damage. This book is the first clear and comprehensive guide to best practice pest management in Australia and will benefit students and trainers of pest managers, landholders, people involved in natural resource management, and industry and government pest management staff.

Information in Managing Australia's Pest Animals is intended to benefit students and trainers of pest managers, landholders, pest management staff, or volunteers working in natural resource management, including:
- private and public land managers – farmers, Crown lands, Department of Defence lands
- parks and wildlife staff
- pest management agencies
- local councils
- Landcare and catchment management groups
- private pest contractors.
