Existing pest control.   The factors affecting variation in the abundances of invasive mammal species have seldom been evaluated at large spatial scales. We used data collected in a large-scale biodiversity monitoring program to identify variables predicting abundances of common brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula; ‘possum’), a marsupial folivore introduced to New Zealand in the by: 3.

      The order Cetacea includes whales, dolphins and are the mammals most fully adapted to aquatic life with a spindle-shaped nearly hairless body, protected by a thick layer of blubber, and forelimbs and tail modified to provide propulsion underwater. New Zealand is the first country in the world to protect marine mammals by law. Suborder: Mysticeti. Forest dwelling browsing mammals, notably feral goats and deer, have been introduced to New Zealand over the past years; prior to this such mammals were absent from New Zealand. The New Zealand forested landscape, therefore, presents an almost unique opportunity to determine the impacts of introduction of an entire functional group of alien Cited by:

        By , the New Zealand government hopes to suppress or remove invasive predators from an additional million acres (one million hectares) of land—and completely remove all introduced. Many introduced species are so established in Australia it is impossible to eradicate them. Not all introduced species become invasive—some have a neutral or even positive effect on the environment. The combined cost of invasive species (management, control and economic losses) is estimated to be more than $ billion dollars a year.

Captain Cook and early settlers in New Zealand found that the distinctive native fauna provided but little food. Besides introducing domesticated livestock, they therefore deliberately encouraged the liberation of other by: 1. Abstract Of the 31 species of exotic mammals that have current wild or feral populations confirmed in New Zealand, at least 25 are actively managed as pests in at least part of their range to reduc Management of introduced mammals in New Zealand: New Zealand Journal of Zoology: No 4.

Skip to Main by: The effects of introduced mammals Introduced mammals such as deer, goats, pigs, rats, mustelids and possums have had an immense effect on New Zealand’s native forests and wildlife. Continual browsing by larger animals opens up the forest canopy and clears the.

Before man accidentally and intentionally introduced various mammals into New Zealand, the only native land mammals were two species of native bats.

The white settlers introduced animals for sentiment or for sport; later, the belief developed that New Zealand's native flora and fauna must eventually be replaced by the European. The book emphasizes throughout that because the only native land-breeding mammals in New Zealand are bats and seals, the great majority of modern mammal fauna comprises introduced species whose arrivals have had profound effects--both for introduced and native species' changes in numbers, distributions, arrivals, habitat, and diet.

The second edition of The Handbook of New Zealand Mammals brings together for convenient reference authoritative, fully documented descriptions of all the land-breeding mammals that are or have been resident in New Zealand (including the Ross Dependency, Antarctica).

Those in Schedule 6 are declared to be noxious animals and subject to the Noxious Animals Act In the New Zealand government introduced Predator Freea project to eliminate all non-native predators (such as rats, possums and stoats) by Some of the invasive animal species.

The second edition of The Handbook of New Zealand Mammals brings together for convenient reference authoritative, fully documented descriptions of all the land-breeding mammals that are or have been resident in New Zealand (including the Ross Dependency, Antarctica).

A complete list of introduced species for even quite small areas of the world would be dauntingly long. Humans have introduced more different species to new environments than any single document can hope to record.

This list is generally for established species with truly wild populations— not kept domestically—that have been seen numerous times, and have breeding populations.

Of the 34 species of terrestrial mammal in New Zealand, 12 (all introduced) live in the Orongorongo Valley. Six have been the focus for research: the brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), ship rat (Rattus rattus), house mouse (Mus musculus), feral cat (Felis catus) and feral goat (Capra hircus).Cited by: New Zealand has been geographically separated from other land masses for over 80 million years, so our native wildlife has evolved in isolation and in the absence of land mammals.

When pests and predators were introduced they took a serious toll on the survival of our native plants, birds, reptiles and invertebrates, who were ill equipped to. Invasive species are the major threat to native biota (and primary industries) in New Zealand, and one of the top five drivers of global change.

This Portfolio produces new or improved technologies and strategies for invasive species management to better protect biodiversity, and help meet community expectations (humane, environmentally. Five species of Aphidius have been introduced to New Zealand in three classical biological control programs over a period of 15 years, and four species have established (Teulon et al., ).

Aphidius eadyi Stary, Gonzalez and Hall was imported in as a biological control agent for A. pisum (Harris) (Cameron et al., ).Cited by: 4. Prior to human settlement, the mammals of New Zealand consisted entirely of several species of bat, and several dozen marine mammal species (though the Miocene Saint Bathans Mammal shows that at some point there were terrestrial, "archaic" mammal species).

The Māori brought the kurī (Polynesian dog) and kiore (Polynesian rat) in about CE, and Europeans from onwards brought the pig. Our pest control methods, includingpossum fur recovery, ground control and Vespex wasp bait are essential for the survival of many native species and ecosystems.

Kauri dieback DOC is responsible for protecting kauri on public conservation land and other land it manages, including many of New Zealand’s most significant kauri forests.

Abstract Although New Zealand lacks native terrestrial mammals (except for two species of bats), more than 50 species of mammals have been introduced by human beings and have become established since the late eighteenth century.

The impact of introduced browsing and grazing mammals on the vegetation of New Zealand is widely perceived as an ecological disaster involving severe depletion of Cited by: Pest control is a big problem in New Zealand and the Zoology Department conducts research into some of New Zealand's introduced pest species such as rabbits, possums, rats and feral cats.

Marine mammal biology is also a strong research theme. Of particular interest are Hector's dolphins, sea lions, and leopard seals.Five species of wallaby have been present in New Zealand for over years. Since their initial releases wallabies on the mainland have increased in numbers and distribution, and they compete with livestock for pasture, browse seedlings in plantation forests and damage indigenous vegetation.
