Phillips, R. A. 2019. Lignes directrices pour l’éradication de mammifères introduits sur les sites de reproduction d’oiseaux de mer inscrits à l’ACAP.

La présente étude a pour but de résumer les lignes directrices pour l’éradication de vertébrés introduits des sites de reproduction d’espèces inscrites à l’ACAP, et de fournir une bibliographie sommaire et une liste de ressources en ligne. Ces références se rapportent principalement à des îles, mais bon nombre de ces principes s’appliquent également aux sites continentaux. Cette étude ne remplace pas les conseils pertinents et détaillés fournis par des experts en matière d’éradication.  Mises à jour Septembre 2019.

Tissue sampling guidelines following disease outbreak - external resource

Unusual animal mortalities, although rare, have been observed amongst Antarctic wildlife. It is always possible that such phenomena are caused by disease introduced or spread by humans. The Australian Antarctic Division has developed an Unusual Animal Mortality Response Plan to provide guidance on what to do if sick or dead animals are discovered in unusually high numbers or with signs that suggest disease.
