Turretfield comes up trumps

‘Rabbit histories’, tracking the mortality of over 4,000 rabbits, are now available from a long-term monitoring site at Turretfield Research Centre in South Australia.

For twenty years, rabbit populations on the property have been routinely estimated and sampled, providing data that is proving useful on many fronts.Blood and tissue samples provide evidence of the incidence of diseases, as well as enabling the development of ‘rabbit histories’. The information from the long running program is proving invaluable to a number of research projects aimed at better understanding and controlling wild European rabbits.
