How do we decide whether a particular vertebrate species can be classified as a pest? What is achieved by control of such pests? This 1994 book describes the application of statistics, ecomics and mathematical modelling to the control of bird and mammal pests. The emphasis is on the science underlying vertebrate pest control rather than on the control itself - the latter point distinguishes the book from any other. The scope is worldwide.
