Rodent Biology and Management

Wildlife Research Special Issue
Volume 38, Number 7

Edited by:
Lyn Hinds  
Grant Singleton  

Publisher: CSIRO Publishing

    Paperback - 2012
ISBN: WR38/07 - AU $ 75.00



Among the 42% of mammals classified as rodents, only 10% of them are significant agricultural pests. However, those 10% have 3 major impacts – they cause major pre-harvest losses to most stages of growing crops, cause post-harvest losses to stored grain and vegetables and they are carriers of at least 20 diseases which are severely debilitating to human health. If these impacts could be reduced by only a small percentage, then there would be substantial increased food security and better livelihoods for smallholder farmers in many developing countries.

This special issue comprises a selection of the presentations delivered at the 4th International Conference on Rodent Biology and Management held in Bloemfontein in April 2010. It represents important research advances in our knowledge and understanding of rodents for their conservation and management and will be of ongoing interest to wildlife biologists, crop protection and conservation specialists, students and policy makers.
