Vertebrate Pests of Built-Up Areas in Queensland

To facilitate best practice management and increased understanding of key pest plant and animals, Land Protection in the Department of Natural Resources and Mines have published a series of pest status assessments since 1997. The assessments synthesise information from a range of sources and these documents are used to change or develop government policy on these pests.

It is believed that built-up areas represent a special set of problems in the management of pest animals. With population increases in urban areas across Queensland and the growing fragmentation of these environments these problems are bound to increase in the future. It is therefore important that changes are made to improve our understanding of these pest problems and ways to manage them.
