Students collect information from the public about methods of controlling possum numbers and then present a report on the use of biocontrol.

Purpose

Although the active biocontrol research programmes the resources make reference to finished in 2010, this unit plan still demonstrates the complexity of the possum control problem. It shows that biotechnological solutions involve input from a wide range of sources and that a successful outcome cannot be implemented without extensive consultation with the public.

Keywords

Biocontrol, possum damage, ecological niche.
