The role of non-toxic cereal prefeed and postfeed (dyed and undyed) in the development and maintenance of 1080 cereal bait shyness in captive possums
(Lincoln University. Ecology and Entomology Group, 1997-11)
Previous research trials with captive possums in pens, and in the field, have shown that a long-lasting aversion to 1080 cereal bait can be induced in this species (Hickling 1994; Morgan et al. 1996). Research investigating ...
