Publications on Reintroduction in Oceania


In this section is listed publications related to reintroduction or other conservation translocations in the Oceania region. It includes general articles discussing Oceania examples, as well as case studies on particular translocations. It includes any research targetted at improving translocation strategies, but not necessarily any research that uses a translocated population. It does not include cases involving rehabilitation or relocation of common species. Publications that report translocations, but not in enough detail to be useful to another practitioner have been excluded, as have ppublications on planned translocations unless they addressed issues of widespread interest. Also excluded are some publications that seemed to be superceded by more recent publications. Unpublished reports or in-house publications and note currently reported here, but these could be included if information is given on how to obtain them. If you know of other publications or reports that should be included on the list, please contact Doug Armstrong.
