The Invasive Animals CRC has published our 2010 Research Portfolio Summary.
The Research Portfolio Summary provides information on the full suite of our research activities and includes completed, current and future projects. It's put together in sections, so you can find out what we're doing for specific pest animals and in certain areas (such as our demonstration sites, or in program areas like detection, prevention and education).
There have also been some remarkable developments with a new wild pig toxin. Our program leader, A/Prof Steve Lapidge is due to return from the US next week after working there on a Fulbright Scholarship he was awarded so that he could share his expertise with our feral animal control counterparts across the ditch. Trials have resulted in some phenomenal knock-down rates.
On the fishy front, there has been some great progress in the 'daughterless carp' area. We've moved beyond the test species and are now starting to produce the first 'sterile ferals'.
These are just a few of the areas we're working in. Read more about our research results and progress in our Research Portfolio Summary.
