Kangaroo management: individuals and communities.

DB Croft

Australian Mammalogy 26(1) 101 - 108
Published: 2004


Kangaroo management plans for the commercial take of meat and hides and non-commercial population control focus on numbers (estimates of species abundance), proportions (quotas) and trends (sustainability of offtake).

I discuss the evidence for these deficiencies in current management plans and suggest actions and research to redress them.
