Publications - Rodent Management Book
"Ecologically-Based Rodent Management"
book is published by the Australian Centre for International
Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and consists of contributions
from authors drawn from 17 countries. It focuses on the concept
of ecologically based management of rodent pests and is divided
into three sections: "Basic research", "Methods of management"
and "Case studies from Asia and Africa". This is in recognition
of the growing demands, particularly in developing countries,
for rodent control strategies that have less reliance on chemical
rodenticides or better targeting of their use.
Arising from the first International Conference on Rodent
Biology and Management, held in China in October 1998, this
book includes chapters from leading rodent researchers spanning
seventeen countries, with an emphasis on Southeast Asian and
African rodent control. Authors of chapters in this book directly
involved in the previous or present ACIAR rodent projects
form an impressive list, and include Grant Singleton, Lyn
Hinds, Peter Brown, Luke Leung, Monica van Wensveen, Lisa
Chambers, Sudarmaji, Jumanta, Rahmini, Bounneuang Douang Boupha,
Onechanh Bounnaphol, John Schiller, Tran Quang Tan, Nguyen
Quy Hung, and Nguyen Manh Hung.
Ecologically based Rodent Management is a must-have on the
bookshelf of any rodent researcher, and stakes its claim as
a definitive and ground-breaking piece of literature.
Complimentary copies of the book are available to researchers,
libraries and institutions in developing countries. If you
