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 ...
Consumption of acute and chronic toxins by 1080 bait shy possums in captivity
(Lincoln University. Ecology and Entomology Group, 1997-02)
Aversions caused by sub-lethal doses of sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) apparently persist in captive possums for at least 3 months, during which time such possums remain averse (or 'shy') to bait containing either a chronic ...
Noninvasive recovery and detection of possum Trichosurus vulpecula DNA from bitten bait interference devices (WaxTags)
The brushtail possum is a major agricultural and ecological pest in New Zealand. A novel noninvasive DNA sampling tool for detecting its presence (WaxTags, or WT) was tested. DNA was recovered from saliva left on WT, and ...
The impact of floral resources and omnivory on a four trophic level food web
(Cambridge University Press, 2008-12-09)
Omnivory is common among arthropods, but little is known about how availability of plant resources and prey affects interactions between species operating at the third and fourth trophic level. We used laboratory and field ...
