dc.description.abstractThis dissertation was concerned with the decision to recommercialise feral rabbits under the Biosecurity Act 1993. While commercialisation is argued to present a conflict with rabbit control, it was found that this decision was a reflection of broad societal change. It was also a product of the influence of key interest groups. The implications of this decision for rabbit control remain uncertain. However, predictions suggestion that while in the short term, benefits may result, in the long term, negative effects may occur. The impacts of commercialisation on rabbit control need to be monitored and addressed.en
