About this book

The purpose of this text is to re-evaluate the true pest status of many common species traditionally regarded as pests. Based on the proceedings of a symposium, it presents data from a number of British and European studies on various mammalian pests.

..the book will be a useful addition to any ... ecological library. Journal of Applied Ecology; (Translated from the German): ..The book is an important step in the differing methods for examining pests and can be recommended to all readers. Above all it belongs in the hands of all experts who deal with cases of destruction by pests and those who put forward new laws and conditions. Zeitschrift fur Saugetierkunde
