The threat posed by pest animals to biodiversity in New South Wales (2007)
Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre, Canberra (Australia).
This report attempts to quantify the impact of invasive animals on biodiversity and shows that they are a major cause of biodiversity decline in New South Wales, Australia. It illustrates the problem's scale in terms of the number and range of native species at risk. This report provides a long-overdue baseline on invasive animals that can be used to make informed management and policy decisions into the future.
