About this book

How do we decide whether a particular vertebrate species can be classified as a pest? What is achieved by control of such pests? This book describes the application of statistics, economics and mathematical modelling to the control of bird and mammal pests. The emphasis is on the science underlying vertebrate pest control rather than on the control itself - the latter point distinguishes the book from any other. The scope is worldwide.

Paperback re-issue, originally published in 1994.

Tables and graphs are numerous and illustrate points well. Formulas are liberally included in the modelling chapters. Comments, comparisons, and criticisms of formula terms help greatly to explain how they are derived, used, and interpreted. Choice
