Pest animals are just one of many factors that influence the desired outcome from managing natural resource based systems, whether for production or conservation purposes. Others factors include diseases, weeds, financial resources, weather and fire management. To be effective, an integrated and systematic approach is required, and the principles and strategic approach outlined in this book can also be used to plan and manage the damage due to other factors.

Managing Australia's Pest Animals  includes case studies of successful and unsuccessful pest management strategies and covers a range of topics, including the history of pest management, current best practice principles, and guidelines for planning and applying strategic pest management approaches to effectively reduce pest damage.
