Variation in the distribution and habitat utilisation of rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in central-western New South Wales

This study examined variation in the spatial and temporal distribution of rabbits. Rabbit warrens were found to be significantly related to habitat parameters and landform morphology. Warrens were more prevalent in open grassland habitats on eastern aspects on medium (10-35%) slopes. Temporal variation in rabbit abundance was mainly attributed to Rabbit Calicivirus Disease.
