Population ecology and captive breeding of Pseudomys novaehollandiae at Anglesea
thesisposted on 2004-01-01, 00:00 authored by Mandy L. Lock
The New Holland Mouse is critically endangered within Victoria. A decline in the species abundance resulted from below average rainfall and structural changes to habitat vegetation. A captive breeding program was established as part of the species recovery plan. Induced breeding throughout the year, under controlled conditions, was limited by the species aggressive behaviour.
